Mangaweka Asparagus | From Farm To Plate

George and Diana Turney have been growing asparagus for almost 30 years at Mangaweka
Asparagus, nestled in the Kawhatau Valley in the central North Island. Along with general manager
Sam Rainey, they bring you sweet-flavoured, juicy asparagus that have been carefully nurtured in
the stony, free-draining river terrace and temperate climate of the valley. Each spear is carefully
hand selected and picked ready for you. Fresh, crisp asparagus gently blanched or sautéed in a knob
of butter and drizzled with honey mustard sauce or barbecued and wrapped in bacon – you’d go a
long way to find a more delicious super-versatile vegetable, says Diana.
