Loriendale Orchard

An organic orchard... Heritage & Modern Apples

Welcome to the webpage for our organic orchard, just north of Canberra, Australia.

This boutique orchard has an international selection of over 120 varieties of heritage and modern apples. First picking in mid January, last in June.

The orchard also grows nectarines, peaches, nashi pears, hazelnuts and a selection of berries which mature through the summer month.

Taste the sweetness and crispness of apples grown in the southern highlands. All the fruits are tree ripened for freshness and quality; they are fruits with flavour.

Our production methods are based on organic best practice. So you will see the bantam hens foraging in the orchard, companion planting, plenty of mulch and biological methods used for the pest control.

Jams, relishes, chutneys and apple sauce are in selected retail outlets around Australia. Apple pies and apples juice are available, in season.

Crisp mountain air and organic growing in the Canberra Region, brings you the best in high country fruit. If you are a fruit lover and wish to eat freshly picked, organically grown Australian produce, come and visit:
