We welcome you to our cherry orchard,  Fortune Fruit Company, high above Lake Dunstan in Central Otago, where you will find the finest and firmest cherries south of the equator. 

Thank you to everyone who helped with the last season. For next year, if you are an experienced cherry picker or packer (or someone who has what it takes to become one), we welcome your application. Travelers are welcome—it is a great spot to stop for five or six weeks and earn some good money in the Central Otago sun before you move on. Please apply by phone or email address at the bottom of this page.

The orchard is located about 8km north of Cromwell, off the Wanaka Highway high above Lake Dunstan. Excellent camp facilities are available, including cooking facilities, lockable storage, showers, laundry, swimming, hiking, and the most magnificent location—with the Pisa mountains to the west and the lake to the east.  See and print a MAP on the next page.
