[31 August/Rural Life] McArthurs Berry Farm, a popular summer stop for locals and tourists alongside the Outram-Mosgiel highway near Outram, will reopen on 01 December, with fresh produce from around the region. A condition of council consent for the hub and a new attached 200sqm residence is that there will be no “non-locally grown” products on site. East Taieri horticulturalists Steve and Kaye McArthur believe their retail shop provides a solution to smaller Otago growers who have produce to sell but not enough for commercial sellers or the Otago Farmers Market in Dunedin. The 2ha farm has been the main source for raspberries, strawberries, currants, gooseberries and boysenberries in the area for the past 50 years.
