“Smith Gully Orchards” at Montacute in the Adelaide Hills is operated by brothers Rob and Charlie Smith, along with their father Ray, Rob’s wife Jenny, and their families.
Rob and Charlie are sixth generation growers of numerous fruit and vegetable lines coupled with some more unique lines of produce.
Today we are mainly growing Cherries, Lemons, Apples and Figs for the fresh fruit market. Currently we also grow from late December until early May Beetroot, Swedes and Turnips.
Their expertise now lies in growing many varieties of fruit, including Apples, in particular Royal Gala, Fuji, Red Delicious, Granny Smith, Pink Lady and Golden Delicious.Read more
Our family has had 6th generations in the fruit and vegetable industry and I can’t wait to introduce it to my 7th generation at home.
It’s rewarding to see crops go from seeds to harvest to the market floor to sell from one family to another.
I was born into this industry 35 years ago and that’s where I want to stay.Read more

Our family has been in the fruit and vegetable industry for over 35 years and we’ve come a long way. We love what we do and I couldn’t picture myself doing anything else.
We like to give back to the community because our produce is from our family to theirs. That’s what makes supporting South Australian businesses so special.Read more
Everyone I know is involved in the fruit and vegetable industry somehow, it’s like it’s in their blood.
I want to do this for as long as possible to support independent South Australian retailers, growers and wholesalers.
The supply chain is important and needs to be protected. We like providing the freshest and tastiest produce available so the community and families can spend time together and enjoy good wholesome produce.
