Nestled in the hills just outside of the country town of Picton, is the family owned and run “Cedar Creek Orchard” which was purchased in 1937 and now has its 4th generation helping to run the family farm.
The Silm family began planting apple trees here in 1941 after Mr. Silm (Snr.) and young Ron Silm found that apples were good feed for the poultry they were breeding. For many years, only apples, of different varieties, were grown.
The orchard began to diversify into stonefruit in the 1980’s, when Ron’s two sons (Michael & Mark) joined the business, and the season was further extended during the 1990’s with plantings of Persimmons.
Today, the orchard is run by Mark & Lynelle Silm, and their eldest son, Damien (4th generation). Sadly, Mark's parents both passed away in 2015. It has approximately 23,000 trees – the produce of which is sold mostly on the domestic market, as well as local Produce Markets, from the shed door & seasonal Pick Your Own days.
Shed sales, directly to the public, begin in November with nectarines, (yellow & white) then peaches, (white only) available through to the end of January.
This is followed by apples from end of Jan to May, and then finally persimmons from April to June.
The varieties of persimmons we have are Makawa Jiro & Fuyu, which are new, non-astringent types – i.e. can be eaten when still hard, just like an apple. It’s quite a sweet fruit, and is extremely popular amongst the Asian population.
We are especially proud, also, of our “Cedar Creek Black Label Apple Juice” which is a pure 100% apple juice with no preservatives, no sugar and no added water. The apples are crushed right here on our farm and the bottling is also done in our own bottling plant on the farm.
We have been making apple juice for over 30 years, and have developed this unique, exceptionally tasting apple juice, which is made all year round. People always comment “it actually tastes like apples”.

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.

Glenbernie Orchard is located within the beautiful Illawarra mountain escarpment, approximately 30kms north of Wollongong in NSW. The new Dharrawal National Park created in 2012 is the farm's closest neighbour.
Ted and Ellen Fahey began the farm in 1939 making a living from selling their home grown eggs and vegetables.
Their son Edward Fahey (Ted Jnr) planted the first apple tree in 1952. Ted Jnr continued to grow the business assisted by his wife Ruth. The family purchased additional land in the 1980's bringing the total possible planting area to around 100 acres. The land is very fertile with a climate suited to growing a variety of fruit and vegetables. Ted and Ruth’s eldest son, Glenn, now manages the farm producing apples, peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots and persimmons.
