Welcome to the one-stop shop for organic fruit growing information

We're Hugh and Katie Finlay. We've been growing organic fruit for more than 20 years, and created the Grow Great Fruit system to help home fruit growers.

Our farm is also home to the Harcourt Organic Farming Co-op, where experienced and emerging farmers come together to increase productivity and profitability, and feed our local community.

Our mission is simple - we believe that producing and eating organic food is good for people, communities and the planet!

Wondering why our webinar "The 5 Key Steps to Quick Success with Fruit Trees" and Weekly Fruit Tips newsletter are free? We support the human right to an affordable, organic diet by teaching people the skills to grow their own.

We know the joy of eating incredible, free fruit straight from your own treewe want you to have the same experience.

Please browse the categories on the left hand side for loads of free info, blog posts and stories about fruit growing, or head to the Grow Great Fruit website to check out our library of learning modules.

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.
