Chris Murphy is a fifth generation grower and co-owner of Murphy Horticulture, an apple and grape orchard based in Blenheim, at the tip of New Zealand's South Island.

While his town battles it out for the title of "Most sunshine hours in New Zealand", Chris is focused on honouring those that have gone before him and protecting and growing his legacy of land for the future. With three gorgeous daughters, he's got a lot to strive for as he stakes his claim as one of the last commercial apple growers in the area.

Chris is a highly valued Hectre customer who has been on the Hectre journey since the get go and he's a top bloke! We hope you enjoy hearing a little of his story.
