The Nightin­gale fam­ily have been grow­ing ap­ples in Wandiligong for over 60 years. What started with a 48-hectare or­chard is now al­most 10 times big­ger with Nightin­gale Bros now man­ag­ing around 400 hectares of fruit spread across five or­chards - two in Wandiligong, the Buck­land Val­ley, Stanley and Bat­low, NSW. It’s not just ap­ples they grow but chest­nuts too, and both, and much more other lo­cal pro­duce can all be pur­chased fresh from the farm at their brand new sales out­let in Wandi. Nightin­gale’s fa­mous apple juice is also avail­able of course along with their in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar apple cider which they have be­gun mak­ing this year. Us­ing a blend of their own ap­ples, there are three Alpine Ciders, a sweet, dry and sparkling. A pleas­ant eight minute drive from Bright you won’t be dis­ap­pointed with what else you might dis­cover on your trip to the beau­ti­ful Wandi val­ley.
