Murrungundy Pistachios is a small family farm run by Richard and Diana Barton. Located at Elong Elong, between Dubbo and Dunedoo, 1 hour north of Mudgee and 35 minutes from Wellington in the Central West of NSW. Their daughter Lucy is now the fifth generation.
Richard and his father Hugh in 1979 propagated rootstock seeds sourced from California USA, and the pistachio wood for grafting from the CSIRO. With a lot of trial and error along the way we now have around 4,000 Pistachio Nut trees.
Pistachio Nuts, originally from Afghanistan, are well suited to the central west climate, and under the right conditions, can live and produce for years. Pistachio Nut Trees thrive on extreme weather conditions With long hot summers to ripen the nuts, this area of Australia has a close climate to the origins of the pistachio nut.
While it took 12 years before the 4000 trees delivered up their first harvest of grape-like clusters, the long-term prospects look good.
Murrungundy Kernels have found their way into some of Sydney’s top restaurants and we have supplemented our big sellers, Natural, Salted and Salt & Pepper Pistachio Nuts with a range of boutique sidelines, namely our Fig & Pistachio Jam and Red Tomato & Pistachio Relish, watch this spot for new and exciting products.
