Located in Thirlmere, The Silm family began planting apple trees in the 1940’s and today the orchard has expanded into a grand total of around 23,000 trees including apples, peaches, nectarines and persimmons. The produce is sold through both the domestic and export markets when in season.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to taste test their “Cedar Creek Black Label Apple Juice” a pure, 100% fruit, crushed and bottled juice right at the orchard throughout the year. Also available is the recently launched “Cedar Creek Cider”, a 100% Australian crafted cider that will give you a true taste of the region…and leave you wanting more!
Opening Hours: The orchard is open for shed sales, Monday to Friday – 8.30am to 4.30pm from November to May; & from June to October, open Monday to Thursday, from 8.30am – 4:00pm. However, please remember this a small family pwned farm, & on occasions may have to close the shed for short periods if no-one can be around. The only time they are open on weekends is during our special Pick Your Own opening days.
Fruit Picking: Seasonal fruit picking is a great activity for the whole family to get out into the orchard and experience where all of the beautiful produce comes from. Nectarines and peaches are picked throughout November-January, and Persimmons are available April-May.
Picking days are extremely popular and bookings are essential.
