Farmer of the Year and a cherry of a family business

Tim Reid's family had been farming apples since 1856, but as farms failed about him he switched to Japanese cherries. The Tasmanian is now farmer of the year.

Be upstanding everyone for the 2013 Australian Farmer of the Year, announced this month: let’s hear it for Tim Reid AM, internationally renowned, and a fifth generation family businessman.

He grows cherries just out of Hobart on the Derwent River, and it is quite a business, let me tell you – 157 years old, now 1000 tonnes a year from 400 acres with $10 million in sales, half exported.
