CAN I BRING MY PETS?
Sorry, we can’t allow animals in the Orchard during Harvest as the Pecans are all on the ground!

CAN WE BRING A PICNIC?
Of course, bring a picnic blanket or fold out chairs to spend a bit of time in the orchard. Please be mindful to use the bins on site to dispose of rubbish, and keep the orchard clean. We will have a coffee cart and sausage sizzle going through the weekend.

WHATS ON IN THE ORCHARD?
This is a free-entry event, where you can experience the thrill of gathering your own fresh pecans straight from the Orchard. Wander through their sun-dappled pecan orchard, surrounded by the rustling leaves and the sweet scent of nature. Crack open the treasure-filled shells to reveal the crunchy, buttery pecans within.

See the tree shaking demonstrations through the weekend and experience the eruption of leaves and nuts!
(Please check back here, or on our social media closer to Harvest for the exact shaking demo times.)

Take in the sights, sounds, and tastes of the season.
Don’t miss this chance to connect with nature, stock up on delicious pecans, and experience the joy of harvest!

The Orchard was originally full of Orange trees, but the original farmers Myra and Harold Hunt, re-planted Pecan trees in the 1980s.
Myra lived to be 100 years old and was our Great-Aunt.

Pecan trees can live and produce for hundreds of years.

Harvest is once a year in May-June.
There are 400 trees in the orchard.

Common wildlife that you can see on the farm: White Cockatoos, Black Cockatoos, Parrots, Kookaburras, Deer, Rabbits & Ducks.
Pecan trees are a species of Hickory.
The Orchard is home to a family of wild deer, who frequently pass through.

The orchard changes every season.
Buds start appearing in mid October and they fully bloom through November until March.
In April through June they turn a golden yellow colour, and drop their leaves as we harvest.
The trees are bare from July-October.
