It all started back in 1993


When Sue Wilson moved to Wairoa she discovered all the wonderful fruit trees growing on their district.

There were 17 walnut trees in their house paddock - perfect to produce Pickled Walnuts - using the special recipe passed down from her Grandmother, as are many of The Wooden Spoon recipes.

After the commercial kitchen was built on the farm, Sue went to work producing preserves for foodies to enjoy.

Sue juggles The Wooden Spoon with her other business SMWDesign + Events, and helps out on the farm from time to time.
