Our Apples

When Sutton’s purchased the orchard it was an apple and stone fruit orchard producing fruit that was sold through traditional markets. Today it is an apple orchard growing both dessert and cider apples. Dessert varieties include: Royal Gala, Granny Smith, Fuji, Mutsu, Jonathon, Pink Lady, Sundowner and Lady William.

Many varieties of cider apples were trialled to determine which were suited to the Granite Belt climate and soils. Those that grew successfully include:

Small quantities of other fruit are grown on the orchard and in the café garden for use in the preserves and café food. These include: apricots, peaches, mulberries and figs.

She’ll be apples, mate.
