Look at the other growers in your region, what is successful, talk to your neighbours. Apples sounds good, Blueberries sounds great - profit wise. Have you seen the cost of them here in QLD? You need to research the region and what grows there. Talking to your perspective neighbours would be a good thing. Research!!!! Maureen.

my suggestion is you first ascertain the cost of getting anything to market, or you may have a marvellous product that does not sell.Be careful not to duplicate your neighbours products unless they are supportive to the idea. Rural folk have their own code of ethics in this way. All berry fruits need a good cold set for the flowers and fruit, so most would probably be ok. What about the soil. Is it free draining ? heavy ? what's the PH. A soil test on this larger block is imperative. Often there is a govt group that advise famers on important stuff for soil preparation etc.
Finally, consider using a fringe area for trees to control the wind. Others probably have this in place already. Immediately to the other side of the trees from the prevailing wind the soil is much colder due to the 'downflow' from the wind current. (same with paling fences) then you would have to plant a good distance out to avoid the main root structures form the trees.
By the way, enquire if the likes of anthracnose or any other nasty disease is known to be a problem in the area. Best wishes for your decision(s)
