Watkins Orchard has been a family-owned and managed operation since 1836 with the current orchard established at Wisemans Ferry in 1901 – the year of Federation – by John’s great great grandfather, Alfred Watkins.

Come and meet his grandson John Watkins. We grow Imperial, Satsuma (Japanese seedless), Hickson  & Emperor mandarins on our land through the winter months.

We also grow cumquats which are picked from the middle of July.

The orchard is open for fruit picking on weekends, public holidays and school holidays. We are a member of Freshcare, a safe food program, which enables us to meet the large supermarkets requirements for food safety.

We have a second Orchard!  It's called Watkins Family Farm, 1006 Singleton Road.
