Situated near Young, on the South West Slopes of New South Wales, Willayoung Orchard  is in the heart of this renowned cherry-growing district.  For many years Young was the leading cherry-producing area in the Southern  Hemisphere.   It is not so well-known that Young’s mix of  soils and strong summer conditions makes it an ideal environment for production of stonefruit.   Willayoung consists of over 5,500 trees on  approximately 8 hectares(20 acres).   Purchased in 1988 by Andrew and Helen Ricketts the land was originally bare ground, apart from  a residence.  After initially operating as a fruit-tree nursery (with a small number of ‘hobby’ fruit trees) there has been a transition to full orchard operation.  The final stage of this transition was the establishment of our packing shed in 2002.
