Kathleen Groves Farm was established in the 1930’s by the Floyd family. William and Kathleen Floyd were the first generation to farm the land, mainly with citrus crops – oranges, lemons, limes and mandarins etc. The farm is now owned and operated by the third generation of Floyds and it mainly produces eureka lemons which are sold to Sydney markets and local retailers.
Kathleen Groves Farm is now opening to the public for the first time in its rich 90 year history. We look forward to greeting you at the farm gate!!

Bilpin Springs Orchard traditionally sent stonefruit and apples to Flemington Markets. The transition to a purely “Pick Your Own” orchard began 1990 by replanting 12 acres with many blocks of just 100 trees, enabling us to offer you a wide variety of deciduous fruits from late January to June.
These include apples, pears, nashi and quinces; Peaches,plums, persimmon, figs and citrus; and more recently, blueberries.
