Graeme & Fiona Schultz, with their two sons Carey & Kym have been supplying us with their amazing Apples since 1999. Located in the picturesque suburb of Forest Range, South Australia the family property stretches over 60 beautiful hectares…25 of which is Orchard, the other 35 remaining virgin bush land.
The farm has been owned by the Schultz family for many years, initially growing premium quality, pesticide free apples Graeme and Fiona decided around 15 years ago that they should convert to Organic, today the farm is renowned for producing Australia’s Best Certified Organic Apples.
Growing Fuji’s, Pink Ladies, Jonathon’s, Granny Smith’s, Red Delicious and Golden Delicious Apples the variety is extensive which is the reason we do not offer any other Apples during their season running from February through to around September each year depending on yield.
Forest Orchards as the property is best known, is a family owned and run farm that also employs several locals, who after so many years are basically part of the family too.
Having sustainable practices as a major concern their Apples are supplied around Australia in recyclable/re-useable black crates….for which we pay a deposit and must return to the farm for a refund.
We applaud the Schultz family for their commitment to the environment as well as supplying us with the most sought after apples in Australia….
