Our Story

Run by the McMahon family, every part of The Strawberry Farm is there to put a little joy into your day. You can pick your own fresh berries for those balmy summer afternoons, and let the kids run free in our specially-designed playground. Punnet has a real character of its own and is a favourite of people all over the Waikato. The Country Providore is the place to go for chic homewares and gifts, as well as specialty and everyday foods from local providers. We have an ice cream trailer that lets us share our ice cream all over the region, looked after by our daughter Kate. And the Strawberry Farm keeps doing what it does best - growing strawberries to be sold by Emma in the shop and showcased by Haley in the café. That's something that makes us enjoy every day on the farm. 

We're a proud family-run business. We believe every day is a little - or sometimes big - celebration.

The Strawberry Farm

The Strawberry Farm has been part of Tamahere for more than 25 years, but it was taken over by the McMahon family (that's us!) in 2003. Starting with an honesty box system, we soon built a shop to sell the berries from, and were the first in Hamilton to start making our own natural fruit ice cream. For all pick your own strawberry enquiries, please phone: 07-859 1380.

Punnet Eatery

As the Strawberry Farm became more of a destination and as the little shop grew, we realised that the community needed its own gathering spot, somewhere people could spend time relaxing and enjoying life. Punnet was born! Now a thriving eatery, we specialise in rustic fine dining, and love creating parties where you can spend time with your loved ones.
