Upper Moutere: Sarau Blackcurrant Festival (1st of 2)

Upper Moutere: Sarau Blackcurrant Festival

Jenny Leith, organiser of the Sarau Blackcurrant Festival, scoops up blackcurrants grown at Upper Moutere in early 2008, shortly before the first festival was held to celebrate harvesting the fruit. Sarau was the original German name for Upper Moutere, a major blackcurrant-growing area.
