Our Story

Locally owned & operated in the Adelaide Hills.

Freshford Nurseries is a family owned business located in the Adelaide Hills, with nurseries at Kenton Valley & Cudlee Creek. The nursery is currently managed by brothers Ben and Dylan Freeman who have taken the reins from their father John Freeman. The Freeman family have successfully run Freshford Nurseries for over 40 years and with young families of their own it looks like the next generation will continue to do so for many more years to come.

We are proud that we contribute to making Adelaide and surrounding areas more green and beautiful with our trees. The environment is very important to us and we take our job seriously, aiming to line streets, parks, gardens, backyards and outdoor community areas with shady, colourful & established trees and shrubs. Greener cities have many benefits, including enhanced stormwater absorption, reduced heat, cleaner air, improved water quality, noise reduction & much more. Investing in sustainable solutions such as trees create a more beautiful and healthier place to live.

Our Team

Our experienced team have been working in the industry for 20+ years. Their extensive knowledge and customer service values mean they are ready to help you with whatever stock you need.

Ben Freeman

Ben is head of sales and enquiries, so when you call you speak directly to an owner, not a salesperson. He briefly explored a career in landscaping after leaving school which was valuable experience and gives him an added edge from an urban landscape perspective. His friendly personality and dedication to the business comes across in all his interactions with customers. Ben is an active member of Treenet and has worked closely with SA Power networks and councils to help with species selection and other industry initiatives. He is committed to leading the way forward in Horticulture.

Dylan Freeman

Dylan is Production Manger, supervising staff and managing tree stock. He is very particular about attention to detail and quality control. With a sporting background playing football for the local Lobethal Tigers club, he knows how to lead a team. Don’t mistake his quiet personality, as he definitely gets the job done. His extensive knowledge of each individual species and what is in stock will impress you. You will probably speak to him direct if Ben is unavailable.
