Our Location
The Orchard is about halfway between Alexandra and Clyde in the Earnscluegh Valley. As such it enjoys a micro-climate that is well suited for growing fruit.

Although suffering from sometimes severe frosts in the Winter and Spring the majority of blocks have frost-fighting sprinklers that alleviate the worst of these frosts.

The area only receives an average of 340mm of rain per annum so we are heavily dependanton the local Earnscluegh Irrigation Scheme for our water supply.

Summer temperatures can reach the high 30c's  so workers need to be aware of the necessity to cover-up and shade from the strong sun.
