Alan Malcolm was born in 1903. His parents were Ernest and Mary Malcolm (nee Thomas) from Appleby. The Malcolm's owned a farm in the Richmond foothills, and some land on the flat which Alan Malcolm developed into an orchard in the 1940's. The hills were too steep to use machinery for ploughing and planting crops, so horses and on one occasion sheep were used to help cultivate the land.
