I left Central Otago for head office in Wellington just as the first syndicates were being established c1983.
Although asked I was unable to give any endorsements to the first syndicates.
Not that that stopped several being formed and extensive plantings taking place.
I have often wondered how these syndicates performed and the return they gave to the investors and the region.
The subject syndicates were reviewed in an article in NZ Horticulture News. By correspondent and Orchardists wife, Dianne Gilchrist, C1983
Name the syndicates here :-XX
The people mentioned in that article and others are to be interviewed to learn of the success or otherwise of these syndicates. What were the factors that contributed to success or failure as the case may be.
One interview has been held-with Gordon McDonald, farmer, orchardist and notification of the project despatched to others in June 2018. I am seeking contact details for other people involved. I welcome communication from anyone prepared to assist with this project.
