About

Freshford Nurseries is a family owned business located in the Adelaide Hills, with nurseries at Kenton Valley & Cudlee Creek. We specialise in large quantity and specialty orders of trees, shrubs & exotic species.

The Wicks family established “Freshford Nurseries” in 1917 at Highbury South Australia.

The business background began with fruit, nut and vines with the main supply to the pioneer settlements established after the war. Apart from supply of quality citrus, loquats, mulberries, persimmons, figs and general lines; the nursery was brought to fame through its development of nut trees, specializing in walnut varieties. Only recently assisting in development of the Australian Walnut Industry, as well as overseas in Bhutan.

Since moving to its present locations in the Adelaide Hills the main focus has moved from fruit and nut trees towards native & exotic trees for wholesale supply. This includes selling to councils, developers, landscapers & more both locally and interstate. All other business enquires are welcome on a wholesale basis.

The business was taken over in 1983 By John and Julie Freeman. It has now expanded to include their 2 sons Ben and Dylan as well as other employees.
