Since 1982

Boyds has been packing asparagus since 1982 and were the first company to supply bundles product to the NZ retailer. Initially established as a packhouse packing for 28 growers in the Waikato region, Boyds has now evolved into a fully vertically integrated grower, packer, and marketer of New Zealand Asparagus company with ~160 hectares of own grown production, accounting for roughly half of New Zealand’s annual crop.

Boyds has always been recognised as an industry leader, having been the first company to bundle asparagus for the New Zealand domestic market. We pride ourselves on quality and freshness and everything we do is about delivering the freshest possible product to our customers. We pick, pack and dispatch on the same day and have invested in our infrastructure and cooling technology to ensure our customers get the best possible experience when buying Boyds Asparagus. We live by the slogan of “Fresh is Best”

Our difference

fresh is best


Pick, pack, and dispatch same day – Picked today on your plate tomorrow.


Product is precooled, washed and hydro-cooled to deliver optimal freshness to customers.


Waikato is the best place to grow asparagus because it has areas of flat, fertile, well drained sandy loam – soil suited to the needs of asparagus.


All Boyds production is located within 15 minutes of our packhouse so product is in our cool store within ½ of being picked.


We’re first to market in late august / early September and go right through to Xmas.
