May-June: We are busy pruning our trees
July-August: Started Bud thinning- removing approx 50% of the buds/blossoms by hand, on some varieties where too many pieces of fruit have set. This will allow more room for remaining pieces to grow. We are busy planting new trees also during this time
Sept- October: Thinning the fruit off the trees by hand as well as irrigating them- fortunately we have had some recent rain
Harrison & Sons is a 4th generation family run farm with 3 generations all currently helping to get the fruit to market. It is run by Ken and Tracey-with Carrie, Troy and Kaitlyn as well as Keith and Mary all helping. The farm produces Peaches, Nectarines, Lucerne hay and Limousin/Angus cattle
The farm is situated in the middle of the Araluen Valley 25km from Braidwood, 60km from Moruya,115km from Canberra
Peaches and Nectarines are our specialty.
Our No1 aim is to produce the best flavoured fruit we can for you to enjoy. We eat what we grow, so if we don’t like it we don’t grow it.
We have approx 3000 trees with numerous varieties ripening throughout the season in both yellow and white fleshed fruit. This way you get different tasting fruit each week.
Our fruit is all hand picked fresh, with fruit ripening about 2-4 days after it is picked – you just need to leave it at room temperature. If you want ripening to spread throughout the week put some in the fridge and then bring them out later in the week.
We sell by the kilo, single layered tray or by the case. We can do mixed trays and bags depending on size and what fruit we have on the day
Our season runs from early Nov to early Jan with our shed open to customers during this time.
Nature plays a large part in our industry – sunshine helps sweeten the fruit and rain helps it to increase in size.
