Gapsted Walnuts is located at Gapsted in North East Victoria on the Ovens River. We have planted approximately 5000 trees mainly of the Franquette and Chandler varieties. The Franquette was chosen for its white kernel and well-sealed characteristics. The Chandler is a slightly larger nut with a thinner shell. Both varieties do well in the North East and have an excellent flavour.
The orchard is owned by John James and his son Stephen who commenced planting some 26-28 years ago. The total production today approaches 45-50 tonnes and will grow to 100 tonnes at maturity. The majority of the crop is sized as Jumbo which is 34-38mm.
We distribute and sell our crop in the North East as well as in Melbourne. During 2012 we invested in new harvesting equipment which allowed us to harvest the nuts with minimum delays, ensuring a clean and healthy product.
We market our crop to Wholesalers, Greengrocers, Delicatessens and individuals. We also attend and enjoy the Boroondara Farmers Market.
So we invite you to try our product from the rich soils of the Ovens Valley.
