The orchards of 9mile Fresh are located in Southern Victoria taking advantage of a suitable climate and rich soils to produce premium apples.
9mile has over 600 acres of high density apple orchards and carefully chooses other growers to take advantage of the best growing regions in Australia for each different variety of apple. These farms’ strategic locations are the key to raising fruit with superior crunch, sweetness and cosmetic appeal.
9mile’s new trellised orchards have 2,500-3,300 trees per hectare all grown on dwarf rootstock and have advanced irrigation systems with the focus on efficient water use. All orchards are covered entirely by netting to protect fruit quality and modify the climate.
Modern practices and technologies are used at 9mile including pruning, thinning and picking platforms, and new techniques such as two-dimensional trellis system, branch tying down and summer branch snapping to produce fruit of the highest quality with a great eating experience.
After harvest apples are packed in the most advanced hi-tech facility in the Southern Hemisphere, utilising bruise-free water channels, state-of-the-art packing lines and internal and external optical scanners to ensure each apple we grow, sort and pack reaches the highest of standards.
