Glenburn Orchards originated in 1857 and was the first property settled in Cygnet, Tasmania. Their close proximity to Cygnet Bay provides a micro-climate, ideal for growing fruit.
Glenburn’s heritage is deeply embedded in the Harvey family, with six generations working the land to grow and produce premium apples and cherries. The inspiration for Glenburn has been John Harvey and son, Richard Harvey (both deceased), who brought Glenburn to where it is today.
James and Adam are the sixth generation in the farming business. Together with their mother Maree they draw on their strengths in developing a good business culture to take the business forward.
Glenburn has their own packing sheds, which means they can harvest and despatch according to market demands. The business strives to meet the strict quality controls required by the Australian and overseas markets, integrating these requirements into their work practices.
Their cool rooms and controlled atmosphere storage systems are located on their premises and use the latest technology, such as Smart Fresh, to maintain extra crunch and quality in their apples. They are guided by experts within the industry and work closely with both domestic and overseas distribution channels.
