Logan Brae Orchard
Occupying the same land since its establishment 100 years ago, Logan Brae Orchards is a family run orchard on the Shipley Plateau, located 5 minutes from the Blue Mountains town of Blackheath. The orchard was planted in 1919 when the plateau was mostly an orcharding community. At it’s fruit-bearing peak in the early 20th century it was home to thirteen orchards. Today Logan Brae is the plateau’s only remaining orchard and is a sweet reminder of how our fruit used to be grown.
