Discover the huge and delicious range of essential toppings and fillings from family-owned Barker’s New Zealand.

Nestled at the foot of New Zealand’s Southern Alps in the lush Canterbury region, Barker’s has been operating on the original family farm for the past 50 years. Three generations have operated the farm, and it’s no wonder – wouldn’t you want to work in a spot this picturesque? On the rolling pastures beside the Te Moana River, the Barker family has been producing jams, wines, sauces and jellies in a way that can only be done in a place like this.

Preserving fruits grown on the farm was a passionate hobby of family matriarch Constance Barker, a skill that she passed on to her only child, Anthony, during the wartime years. In fact, innovation and resourcefulness seem to be in this family’s blood. Not only did Anthony take over the farm, but he also tinkered in his free time. A chilly camping trip and an improvised fire served as inspiration for him to redesign the wood stove in the mid-1970s. In 1978 wood-heater manufacturer Kent picked up the design and began manufacturing the Kent-barker log fire.

But Anthony’s main focus was always the farm. After years producing country wines from wild elderberries and fresh juices from a seemingly endless supply of blackcurrants, he launched a range of preserves in the 1980s.

Fast-forward to the present day, and Anthony Barker’s early range of preserves has expanded into a behemoth collection of jams, curds, chutneys and even compotes (similar to a jam but cooked to maintain the fruit’s texture), along with a brand-new range of dessert sauces.
