Australia: Famous apple orchard to become flower farm

Peter Darley’s Daydawn Nashdale apple orchard has been sold and will be turned into a flower farm.

Daydawn is one of Orange’s most famous orchards, having been started by Mr Darley’s dad, Noel, about 70 years ago.

Mr Darley is retiring after the property was sold for $2 million last week.

The new buyer, Sydney flower grower and seller, Chris May of Mayfarm Flowers, will take out the 22,000 trees and replace them with greenhouses and fields of flowers with a “cellar door-like’’ public sales facility.
