Rieschieck Orchards - Wayne & Andrew Rieschieck
A family business operating nearly 100 years, first starting out in Doncaster and later moving to the Yarra Valley in the 1980's, brothers Wayne and Andrew have taken over the running of the business growing apples and pears.
The property is on about 150 acres, 110 of that being orchard (80 acres is netted). Although with dam levels almost non existent, it is certainly making life tough. Drought has affected the sizeing of the fruit and unless some water falls soon it could be a serious problem for the next seasons fruit coming through.
Rieschiecks have been supplying FHG Rogers for the past 12 years and have always had a good relationship and understanding bothways. If only the sky would open up and give us a big dump of water - our relationship could be a whole lot better !!!!!
