Bob is your quintessential, quietly spoken but very determined Australian farmer. With partner Kate Joyce, they tend to their 80 acres on the slopes of the Towac Valley with intense passion.

The property was passed down to them from Bob's parents who came from England after the war and started working for the Pascoe's - another name synonymous with fruit growing in the area. They purchased their first parcel of land in 1952 and began by growing strawberries.

Interestingly, they were one of the first commercial strawberry growers in NSW. Stonefruit such as nectarines and peaches then adorned the Towac Valley slopes but now its entirely dedicated to producing apples & cherries of intense flavour and quality.
