About us

In 1996, Stephen and Sue Smith became the proud owners of their property on Dunstan Road. With a vision for creating something special, they embarked on a journey by planting a variety of nut trees, including walnut, hazelnut, almond, and pinenut. Nestled in the heart of Central Otago, the region's colder winters and dry summers offered ideal conditions for cultivating these delectable nuts, resulting in a product of exceptional purity, rich flavors, and top-notch quality.

Among these treasures, walnuts stand out as one of the healthiest nuts, packed with beneficial omegas for your well-being.

Harvesting season commences in March and extends until May, bringing forth a bountiful yield of hazelnuts, walnuts, and almonds, while the pinenuts await their turn, patiently harvested during the springtime.

To ensure the highest standards, all our products are meticulously crafted on-site within a purpose-built processing room/kitchen.

Central Nuts takes pride in supporting the local community by utilizing nearby ingredients in our creations. For instance, we incorporate Marsh's Honey from Etrrick into our delightful muesli.

You can find Stephen showcasing our offerings at the Cromwell food market almost every week during market season.

We sincerely hope that you relish the fruits of our labor and enjoy our products to the fullest. Thank you for being a part of our journey.
