R&R Smith is a fourth generation family run apple orchard managed by Andrew Smith and his Father Ian.
The land on which the orchard still stands was purchased by Ron Smith in 1938 just before serving in the second world War. Later Ian was to purchase more land including the stone house. The orchard was established in the early 1900's supplying a local packhouse for transport to the Sydney and Melbourne markets.
In 80's and 90's both Ian and Andrew travelled to Europe to visit top European advisors and growers and learn the latest techniques and scientific thinking, including Northern Holland and South Tyrol
in Italy. In 1998, Andrew established the fist 15 acres of organic orchard on the family property in Huon. Today the entire orchard is managed organically and in recent years we have expanded our own production onto neighbouring properties and source additional production from trusted growers in QLD, VIC, SA and WA.
We could not have achieved what we have without the help of some genuinely wonderful people some of whom have been with us for more than 20 years. We thank our staff for their loyal contribution making it possible for you to enjoy our certified organic apples.
