About Willabrand Figs

Willa WauchopeFigs were never part of my childhood, however when we moved to the 1840’s Glen Ewin Jam Factory at Houghton, with its fig history and remnant orchards so started the fig journey.

Willabrand Australia nowadays is a multi award winning family owned South Australian business specialising in figs. Our orchard comprises of almost 12,000 trees with 5 main varieties: Archipal, Black Genoa, Brown Turkey, Deanna and Spanish Desert. In the 32 years that we’ve been at Glen Ewin, we have never sprayed the figs with any chemicals and employ organic management practices wherever we can.

Each variety of fig has a distinct look and most importantly a distinct flavour. We try to use specific varieties for different products, for example the enrobed and glace figs are usually made from the Brown Turkey. They are the perfect size for this as they hold their shape throughout the cooking process.

The fig season is short but sweet, usually commencing mid February and ending in April. We welcome you to visit our orchard at Glen Ewin Estate and pick your own.

Willabrand is now making a range of alcoholic fig beverages with our Fig Gin being the star of the show.  We launched the Gin at Tasting Australia in June 2017.  The Gin, as well as our other products are available online and at numerous boutique bottle shops in South Australia.
