At Kahikatea Gardens we produce a range of jams and chutneys under the "Rexworthy Cottage" label. They are made on-site, in our commercial kitchen using excess produce from our vegetable garden and orchard. All are priced at $10 and are only available from Kahikatea Gardens.
The label "Rexworthy" comes from Neil's great grandmother, Elizabeth Rexworthy who migrated to New Zealand from England with her husband Henry Lenton Gray.
