The secret of delicious pears...

 The Hansen family has been growing pears and apples for 4 generations. Our home orchard in Nubeena where Oscar Ernest Hansen planted his first pear trees, is still producing high quality lucious fruit.

The secret of our tasty pears lies in specific soil conditions, mild coastal climate, and passion to produce prime quality produce. 


O.E. Hansen & Son grows 6 commercial pear varieties as well as smaller quantities of heritage pears and apples which are sold at our farmgate stall in Nubeena. Open 365 days a year.

Nubeena Orchards is famous for its lucious  Doyenné du Comice, Beurre Bosc, Winter Cole , as well as Packham's Triumph, Josephine and Spring Dew.


Because Tasmania' s long ripening season and our coolstorage techniques suited specifically for pears,  flavours and sugars of our pears have had natural ageing process and keep developing after being picked.
