What is summer without crisp, orchard fresh apples? When you visit Ettrick you are in the home of the New Zealand apple industry. The Central Otago climate with its brisk winter frosts and consistent warm dry summers has fostered a robust apple economy. The dry climate has led to several organic orchardists in the area. Look for orchard gate stalls for the freshest, crisp apples.
Many stalls work on an honesty box system whereby you insert cash into a locked box.
Ettrick is where the side roads lead to the Old Man Range. At the southern edge of Ettrick are panoramic views of the Teviot Valley.
