    Mountain Top Avocado Orchard Sold 

    The owner of Mountain Top Orchards was Barry Kuhnell, who originally bought the property over 10 years ago. The land sits atop a volcanic soil plateau just north of Lismore and was full of unmarketable Pawlonia trees when Barry first set eyes on it. He converted the farm to a high-quality avocado orchard with over 14,000 Hass variety trees. He and his family and staff grafted trees themselves right on the farm, mainly utilizing Velvick and Reed varieties. 

    With the avocado orchard sold, the management group also received a 187ml irrigation license, 10 km bore, and harvestable rights. The property also had an on-site nursery for grafting trees as well as two homes.
