Our story began in 1940 when our grandfather, George Riseborough, planted his first cherry trees in Victoria’s fertile Yarra Valley. Over 75 years later, our family still proudly carries on this cherry growing tradition with diligence and passion to produce Australia’s finest cherries.
Today the orchard is run by George’s grandsons, Glenn & Stephen Riseborough who have continued to grow the business into one of Australia’s leading cherry producers.
We’re committed to bringing you and your family the freshest, most delicious cherries right through the season.
So you know that every CherryHill Orchards cherry is picked at its prime and brought fresh to you.
With around 90 acres of rich fertile soil, CherryHill Wandin is a prime cherry growing region in Australia. The orchard where it all began in 1940 has become the focus of mid-late season export quality varieties that deliver some of Australia's best cherries for Christmas and the new year. Our orchard in Wandin is where U-Pick is based where you are able to pick your own cherries from mid-November until mid-January.
Wandin is also where all of CherryHill's fruit is packed and shipped to our customers. Our close proximity to Melbourne including the international airport, wholesale markets, supermarket D.C.'s and interstate trucking routes makes it the perfect cherry hub of Australia.
In 1992 a 488 acre property was purchased on the Murray Valley Highway at Cobram, just 2 kilometers from the Murray River. Today Cobram serves as our main source of early season cherries including the Sequoia™ club series. We harvest fruit here from early November through to mid December leading into Christmas.
We have invested heavily in this orchard, from varieties and mass plantings to protection measures to ensure consistent quality and volume. CherryHill Cobram will be an invaluable supply of premium early season cherries for our domestic retail and export customers.
In 2004, Glenn and Stephen Riseborough found what they believe is a most "unique" property in Victoria's alpine region.
At nearly 1000m above sea level our Tolmie Orchard is arguably one of Australia's latest producing cherry orchards. The property, which is made up of well over 150 acres of land with a strong water supply will be our main source of cherries from late January through until March.
This orchard produces premium quality late season cherries in large volume to match the needs of our customers locally and internationally.
