The McBride family came from a dairy farming community in the Waikato in September 1978. Jim McBride purchased his first Hayward Green, 3 Hectare, Tee Bar Orchard 7km’s up No. 3 Road.
In raising 2 daughters and 3 sons, there was good confidence in the market and plenty of opportunity for the children to work on their kiwifruit skills and sometimes earn some pocket money.
This succession continued with Murray, the middle child, taking up his opportunity to build a life and business within the industry.
This dedication, investment and commitment has led to the development of multiple orchards and a management company called BAYGOLD Ltd.
Over the years BAYGOLD Ltd has built a strong reputation, team, intellectual property and infrastructure. It has competently managed shareholder and independent orchards at a high level of return.
BAYGOLD Ltd provides employment opportunities and supports local mission and community work, these all being testimony of BAYGOLD's unique entity and purpose of "Grow the Future".
The growth of BAYGOLD Ltd will occur by partnering with the ambition of shareholders and the industry. The team is dedicated and hard working, from Governance level through to the Operations.
