Hey Russell, thanks for the comment, there clearly are precious few of us,
the barriers to entry in orcharding are high as are the return time frames
which makes it bloody tough for new young aspiring fair food orchardists.
Market gardening and livestock are less risk, less capital, shorter return
periods and way less issues with land tenure…
Well the downside is not as many people to yarn about grafting, rootstocks
and mycrorhyza with but the upside is limited competition!
I don’t know any orchardists in the Stanthorpe area sorry. Others on here
of those more northern climes will have an idea though. All the best with
your endeavours and drop on by if you’re ever Stanley way.
