Tahune Fields Nursery
Tahune Fields Nursery is a celebrated producer of high quality pome and stone fruit trees for commercial orchardists throughout Australia.
Based in the fertile soils of the Huon Valley in Tasmania, we are the second largest fruit tree nursery in Australia and grow in excess of half a million trees a year.
Along with growing fruit trees, Tahune also produces apple bins, crates and pallets.
Award Winning Service
As the winner of Tasmanian Community Achievement Award in the category of Primary Industry and Agriculture (2007), Tahune was specifically acknowledged for its success in national and international export, while making a positive impact on the local community and state of Tasmania.
Expanding (and Protecting) Our Roots
In the same way that a growing tree increases its fruit production each year, Tahune Fields Nursery continues to discover new ways to expand our offering to customers. Our services range from scientific, (DNA testing of different apple varieties to preserve exclusive root stocks) and practical, (producing pine apple bins and wooden pallets for fruit and other local industries) to downright innovative.
Recently we developed a unique way of delivering young apple trees to clients by packing the roots in moist sawdust instead of refrigerated containers – saving time and handling costs while massively improving the ease of planting and the quality of future growth. The growers (and the trees!) are thrilled.
As a licensed member of the Australian Nurserymen’s Fruit Improvement Company (ANFIC), Tahune Fields Nursery works in partnership with plant breeders and new variety owners internationally. We are grateful to have exclusive access to new and heritage varieties of apples, pears and other fruits from around the world, helping us remain uniquely competitive in the nursery market.
Tahune Fields Nursery provides employment opportunities for Tasmanian’s with a disability.
“The division faces the same commercial challenges of regulars business but must also ensure that our clients and employees are continually and adequately supported.”
