The success of Reid Fruits is dependent upon a strong team all focussed on a single outcome – to produce the finest quality cherries for cherry lovers across the world.

​From growing to packing, and finally to marketing, each member of staff – both casual and permanent – know that they play a key role within the Reid Fruits Team.


Growing fruit since 1856

The Reid family and their dedicated staff have been growing quality fruit since the first orchards were established in 1856, over 165 years ago.

Tim Reid, Managing Director, is a fifth generation orchardist and has been the powerhouse behind transitioning Reid Fruits from an apple producer in the Huon Valley to a cherry producer in the Derwent Valley.

Reid Fruits’ long term success can be attributed to the company’s philosophy that there is no substitution for quality. Sustainable management practices ensure that future generations of cherry lovers will appreciate the care and guardianship that underpins the production of the finest quality cherries.
