A visit to Stanthorpe isn’t complete without spending some time at Sutton’s Juice Factory. However, Sutton’s is more than what its popular name suggests. Sutton’s is a family run, fully functional apple orchard incorporating a juice factory, a cidery, a distillery and a shed café. This boutique business offers visitors the chance to sample apple juices, ciders and conserves, as well as enjoy delicious local produce in the café. Many of our guests have commented on the apple pie. Some think it is the best they have ever tasted, and we would have to agree!
Fast Facts on Sutton’s
David and Roslyn Sutton purchased their apple orchard back in 1994 and have grown it into the multi-faceted boutique business it is today. There are over 30 varieties of apples on the farm including traditional eating varieties (Pink Lady, Granny Smith, Gala and many more) as well as French cider apple varieties. The orchard also grows nectarines, lemons and apricots which are used in the Shed Café.
