Not only is The Litchi Orchard a functioning litchi farm, but it is a green haven of good food, décor, design, craft and unique retail offerings. Over the years, it has become a meeting point for the North Coast community as well as a unique experience for visitors.
At The Litchi Orchard we celebrate small business, food and farming, and creativity - focusing on the people behind the cogs. To complement our love for all things fresh and vibrant is our appreciation for the aesthetic – design and décor. Our aim is to nurture and grow community spirit and appreciation for local food and fare.
eat. shop. make. grow.
From humble beginnings as a Wholesale Nursery in the middle of over 300 Litchi trees, to the rustic early Farmer’s Markets, our Litchi Orchard community has grown into a collective of passionate food, home & lifestyle small business owners.
This is a community of local talent and creativity.
We are home to the new mid-month Maker’s Market and the seasonal Orchard Nights events – but now additionally offer a range of food & lifestyle shops and eateries. The nursery has since closed its doors but in its place are the new food gardens and the kids can now explore the magical butterfly garden. Come and wander through our treasured Litchi Orchard and meet the dynamic people who form such an integral part of our little community.
FAMILY & community
Although the litchi trees are around 100 years old, the property has been owned and run by a local farming family since 1999. We are committed to local food and our community and aim to use our cherished little corner of the world to celebrate real
food, creativity and a simple approach to life.
Our vision at The Litchi Orchard is to create an authentic haven offering a respite from the pace of the busy world. It’s a meeting point, an environment of authenticity and a place to escape to. Bring your family and discover the wide open space at a slower pace.
Our monthly Market has been running since 2009 and is a great morning out for the whole family with a focus on makers of quality craft and food. Our beloved Night Market, held on the last Friday of every month, will be revived in 2021 and refreshed into a seasonal evening event for all the senses. Expect a relaxed evening of music, good food and drink shared with old and new friends alike in a beautiful setting.
