Tamar Valley Organic


A mature walnut orchard in the picturesque Rowella area, with trees in flower during the festival.

Take a short walking tour down past the beautiful orchard, tended by hand using organic principles, where you’ll see the nutlets growing. Then it’s on to the processing sheds with owner Scott Hine-Haycock to learn about harvesting, washing and drying the nuts – soft, sweet and delicious.

A great opportunity to find out more about what it’s like to buy and run a small, horticultural property producing a niche product, direct from the owner.
