We are back from leave, having spent a relaxing month travelling around Victoria and S.A. Please feel free to order any products as we have plenty of stock.
We entered our walnut kernel and pickled walnuts in the National Food Awards in Melbourne last month we are thrilled to announce that have won gold for both! The judges gave the pickled walnuts 98 points out of 100 and commented: “Excellent pickled walnuts. Very well balanced and delicious pickling liquor subtly flavouring the fruit; very […]

We have nearly finished commissioning our new cracking line and we have been very pleased with the quality of the kernel coming out. It should be fully operational within the week. However we are selling kernel now. Feel free to order online.
The weather was fine, especially on Saturday and people came out to pick their walnuts with great enthusiasm. Some of Jane’s workmates were really into the spirit of the day! (Sorry about the lack of colour – not my photos.)

The new line comprises 5 machines which […]
We are opening our orchard to the public on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 May and invite you to pick your own walnuts at half price (i.e., $5/kg) This is a great opportunity for the family to have fun picking a healthy product in the countryside and learn something from the farmer about how walnuts […]
It’s been a great season and we have nearly finished bringing in a very good crop. Nuts are larger than last year, flavour is great and we have probably gone close to tripling what we harvested last year (not a great year, though, with the drought). We have a new grading machine imported from […]
We had a warm, moist early spring which is generally bad news for our number one enemy, walnut blight. Blight is a bacterial infection which enters the flower and pollen during rain events and develops through the season to cause unsightly black marks on the green husk and eventually on the shell […]
