We love our Apple Isle and we're loving that we're now stocking 'Tas Apple Cards & Tea Towel! Here's a bit of the story behind this wonderful label...
"I grew up on a beautiful apple orchard and mixed farm called 'Sunnybanks' at Hayes in the Derwent Valley. It was a small property of 165 acres but labour was plentiful in the fifties when we exported our apples to England. When exports declined in the sixties, my parents started the Apple Pip, a roadside shop at Hayes, which created a local market for all of Dad's produce.
My father, Jim Terry, gave me his collection of applebox labels and said that one day one of the family would think of something special to do with them.
They are pure Tasmanian - designed here last century for the purpose of identifying our quality apples overseas and printed in Hobart, supporting a local business." ~ Jill Appleyard (yes, it's her real name.)
