Apples and Chestnuts

Callum and his mate Themis head for Forest Range, an area in the Adelaide Hills famous for its orchards and nut groves.

First, they visit ‘Adelaide Hills Fresh Chestnuts’ where they learn how to harvest chestnuts by ‘vacuuming’ them off the ground! Their next stop is the ‘Mahnew Orchard’, a 100-year-old family business where they tend to 8,000 apple trees.  Here the boys are given the task of picking apples to earn their keep.
