The Land of the Long White Cloud

Loving it! Here I am up in the plane again with Rob Wilson. Just flying over his land is amazing! He points out the many, many indigenous plants that cover his acreage. In fact, Rob has won an award in New Zealand for his conservation of the native forest. Now we’re flying towards his orchards, as we cross the beautiful sea. His orchards are stunning, and will soon undergo another thinning so that only the perfect fruit reaches the U.S. and Albert’s Organics. My final day in New Zealand is a Saturday, and apple grower Tom Masterson takes me to a cave underneath Huka Falls, that drains from Lake Taupo. It’s truly an adventure to advance inside a little cave underneath these magnificent falls. It allows me the perfect time to sit and reflect on my New Zealand journey and what a magnificent place it is – this land of the long white cloud.
