We’re so excited to finally launch our range of specialty nut butters.

To say it’s been a long time coming is a bit of an understatement.

 In 2005 The Boss convinced The Prof they should purchase this quiet little patch of land just outside of Christchurch.

It was just that – a patch – nothing but a field of overgrown grass, bordered by a creek, looking out across a sheep or three.

The Boss had a clear vision; established trees, a barn + rows of heirloom vegetables…

So The Prof and The Boss broke the land in, starting from scratch, one planting at a time.

Almost a decade on, it’s hard to imagine how it once was.

 Over the last few years we’ve endured a bit of a beating.

Two big earthquakes and countless aftershocks have rattled the place through and through.

We shoveled liquefaction, the earth moved, we started all over again.


With sweat and determination – the property was reborn.

 Now The Boss and The Prof live off their vegetable harvest and the trees yield tasty nuts.

The Barn is a place we all like to come when the kids are in town. For bonfires, BBQs and ‘stay-cations’.

 White Heart Specialty Nut Butters is the end of a chapter, but the beginning of something really good.

We hope you enjoy our nut butters as much as we do.
