Our Snowgoose story is the happy collision of industry pioneers with a shared passion for unrivalled quality authentic food. We started life as a boutique juice company using apples from our Snowgoose orchard, located at the foot of the Snowy Mountains near Tumbarumba, New South Wales.
Long before farmers’ markets existed, Snowgoose was filling its rustic wooden boxes with the finest tasting seasonal fruit. Under the expert guidance of John Antico AM, its exquisite farm-fresh produce moves from orchard to doorstep in less than 48 hours, delivering only the finest tasting seasonal fruit and hand-selected gourmet produce to customers across Australia.
For almost 60 years John Antico has united industry pioneers with a shared passion for unrivalled quality and authentic food. Over time, John has become heavily involved in key industry task forces and government committees, as he was keen to share his knowledge and passion. In 1989, The Queen’s Birthday Honours List awarded John a Member in the General Division of the Order of Australia (AM) and in 1999 The Australian Institute of Export nominated and awarded John The Export Hero Award for export achievements in the industry.
Today, our boxes are all hand-crafted locally in Australia from sustainable and renewable timber resources.
The timber and plywoods used to create our beautiful boxes are supplied from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and/or PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) accredited businesses.
The timber offcuts are recycled to produce garden mulch or gifted to schools for woodworking projects.
We at Snowgoose try our best to improve the way we purchase materials to be as kind as we can to the environment.
At Snowgoose, we believe in surprising, delighting and making someone feel special in an unforgettable way. We believe that in this busy, crazy world, people need to feel cherished with a gift of taste that helps them slow down for a moment… to pause and indulge in life’s simple luxuries.
Inspired by nature, crafted by orchards and styled by artisans, Snowgoose premium farm-fresh hampers are extraordinary experiences to receive, and truly delightful to give. We guarantee to captivate the senses and delight the taste buds with the finest, freshest produce from Australia’s top growers and artisan providores, all exquisitely presented in our signature wooden boxes.
Every thought, every product, every element that goes into a Snowgoose box has a story that matches our own - a rich heritage, a journey of discovery and a passion for quality beyond compare. We travel our sunburnt land in search of exclusive items, selecting only the best premium produce, because we believe that this perfectly reflects how you feel about your gift recipient.
Together with the handpicked fruit from our orchards and growers, our Snowgoose boxes burst with the most delicious artisan produce. From award-winning chocolates, handmade using Belgian couverture, to exceptional boutique wine that’s usually reserved for a vineyard’s family and friends… discover their unique stories in our regularly updated Artisan Producers’ Showcase.
Since our first Snowgoose Orchard in Tumbarumba, we’ve expanded our orchard holdings, purchased cherry farms and developed long lasting relationships with Australia’s leading growers and producers. As a result, Snowgoose has the luxury of selecting the very best.
Only the most perfect fruits are handpicked from the trees at exactly the point when they’re at their largest, juiciest and sweetest. Then, we nest them into the straw in our rustic wooden boxes together with complementary artisan produce, unique to your chosen theme.
These top of the crops are express delivered to your gift recipient throughout Australia with the knowledge that their just-picked fruit has been on the trees only 48 hours earlier.
