|Apples lined up on the sorting belt in all their glory. Benji's first comment - "Why do the apples have leaves on them?" Unbelievable!|
Donnybrook's Spring Valley Orchard is an organic wonderland of Pink Lady and Sundowner apples. We find EXACTLY the sort of hands-on orchard experience we have been hankering for - a tour of the sorting shed, meet and greet with the chickens and roosters in residence, a chance to pick from the trees til our buckets are full, topped off with a visit to the kitchen garden where the kids sample cherry tomatos and sunflower seeds straight from the earth. We leave an hour or so later with seeds in our pockets, silverbeet on our laps and ten kilos of fresh apples in the boot.
