Fruit tree nursery coffs harbour heirloom varieties of grapes to be harvested for restaurant wine pairing and or for dessert.

Coffs Harbour Fruit Estate and Nursery
This new site is growing by 10ha of fruit, vegetables and grains with plans for a new 4,000-litre wine cellar.
The fruit and vegetables are grown to provide fresh local produce for various health benefits and food events.
The land is also a magnet for birds, and the estate has eight free-range hens, currently operating in suspended egg collection.
The hens are each raising approximately 150 eggs each year which will hatch as healthy chicks and will hopefully be reared in an intensive process under our strict regulations, as a variety of health foods and culinary delicacies.
Current rainfall average is 4,150mm a year.
Long-term visions also include plans for drought-resistant crop production, farm tourism, cafe concepts and international trade partnerships.
We are excited about all of these possibilities and hope to be here for a long time to come.
The first fruits of our labour are coming. The garden is now a busy place where we will look after hundreds of plants, install irrigation and secure the produce as needed to create fresh local produce for the good people of Coffs Harbour.
It’s a rich and exciting time.

While our beds are just as busy as our new vineyard, we have already begun this year’s vegetable planting program. Our vegetable production includes overwintering for a year-round supply of fresh vegetables for menus and a year-round supply of produce for canning, freezing, dehydrating and preserving.
So far we’ve planted approximately 8,000 seedlings with plans to grow on these with eight rows of blueberries, two rows of blackcurrants, two rows of bluegum, two rows of summerberries and two rows of sour cherries.
We’re in the early stages of two new food projects, which we’re also very excited about.
Farm Tour &, Winery Program in association with the Dorchester Institute of Rural Studies and Conservation.
Up until now the only way to experience our farm has been as a tour with fresh farm produce available for purchase.
We are so excited about this opportunity as it opens up the door for a year-round appointment for people to come and meet our team, share in our passion for local food, work with local growers and also the first of all hospitality aspects, meeting our team on the farm.
We are also looking forward to offering a wine tour &, tasting program where we offer people the opportunity to work with us and taste a series of fine wines we produce from our vineyard.
More details on these programs to follow soon.
For the time being, we’re looking forward to a very busy season.

The first group of machinery arrived last week. On that same week we had
