Stephen Sykes – Director of Enterprise Services, Orange City Council
Stephen discusses Orange’s pre-eminence as an area for quality produce and wines. Despite this, there is a definite skills shortage in the area for labour workers and pickers.
The area produces lots of stone fruit, including cherries, as well as apples and wine grapes, which harvest around October.
