McLaren Vale Orchards is a picturesque farm of 27 acres in McLaren Vale, owned and run by Mark and Lisa McCarthy and family.
They grow many varieties of apple, pear, grape, peach, apricot, nectarine, cherry, raspberry, citrus, avocado and mango. They also have a 16 acre farm in Merbein, Victoria where they grow fig, pistachio, quince, pomegranate, walnut, pecan, sultana and sun Muscat. They grow with minimal or no sprays where possible and are looking toward changes necessary for Organic certification.
They sell all of their produce at the Willunga, Adelaide Showground and Victor Harbor Farmers Markets and have a farm gate cool room where people can come seven days a week and pick up their produce in season.
