The Steicke’s beautiful 32 acre property has been in their family for fifty years. Just outside of Angaston, it is a traditional mixed farm, with 8 acres devoted to fruit orchards, the source of Gully Gardens dried fruit and natural confectionary.
Rick and Rosemary sold all their fruit to large companies for many years but in 2006, as market changes occurred, they began to produce their own dried fruits. That year, they opened the Farm Shop offering dried and fresh fruit. As their popularity increased, they added new lines, all produced on their Gully Gardens property.
The colourful line-up includes all manner of dried fruit, sugar-free confectionery, chocolate and yoghurt dipped dried fruit and fruit logs. They also offer non-sulphured dried fruit for those with dietary concerns.
The Steickes continue to source fruit from their own orchards, hand picked, hand cut, dried and packaged on site, maintaining a treasured Barossa tradition.
