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.
