Since 2010, we've sold fruit trees each winter under the Mt Alexander Fruit Gardens brand (the previous name of our farm).

In October 2018 we launched the Harcourt Organic Farming Co-op (which is how the property is now known). At the same time, Katie and Sas launched Carr's Organic Fruit Tree Nursery, under the expert mentoring of Merv Carr (Katie's dad).

You won't be able to buy fruit trees from Mt Alexander Fruit Gardens any more, but from winter 2019 onwards you'll still be able to buy the same high-quality trees you've come to expect, with an added emphasis on hard-to-find and heritage varieties.

Grow Great Fruit Program

We grow organically, and teach organic growing principles and methods. We’re aware of the changing climate, so the farming methods we use help to create solutions, not add to the problem. We've poured years of experience into our farm-tested Grow Great Fruit program after talking to hundreds of home growers, and figuring out what you need most...information, security, and someone you can trust to help you solve your problems.
