Experience the Exotic

The fresh vegetables that Halfords Exotic Produce bring to you have their origins in the Inca empire over 600 years ago.

The Incas were not only superb political organisers, they were skilful agriculturalists, too. They cultivated about 80 food crops: more than the farmers of Asia or Europe did. They farmed so successfully that they kept thousands of stone warehouses and silos piled high with food.

In 1869 Mr W. Jameson, the great-grandfather of Mr Peter Halford, came out from England to join the colonial police force. During a layover in Chile he picked up some yam tubers and brought them with him to New Zealand, planting them in Wanganui. The Halfords have been growing them ever since.

Commercial production of yams began in the 1960’s, with Mr Peter Halford establishing the first markets for a vegetable that was hardly known by the majority of New Zealanders. Continuing in the same tradition, the next generation of the family are now actively involved in Halford’s Exotic Produce. With the same skill and sensitivity as the Indians of the Andes we bring to you exotic produce that is unique to New Zealand.
