Ashley Graham Mason, a prominent name in the Adelaide Hills’ fruit-growing community, tragically passed away following a quad bike crash, leaving a legacy that spans generations.

The Incident
The unfortunate accident occurred on a private property in Forest Range, where Mason, at the age of 92, was critically injured while operating a quad bike. Despite prompt medical attention, he succumbed to his injuries in the hospital.

A Storied Legacy
Mason was not just a fruit grower; he was a pillar in the Adelaide Hills, with his family’s roots deeply entrenched in the region’s agricultural history. AG & HC Mason, his family-run farm, is renowned for producing some of the finest apples in South Australia, reflecting a rich heritage and dedication to quality.

Community’s Tribute
Grant Piggott, CEO of Fruit Producers SA, hailed Mason as a “stalwart” in the industry, acknowledging his vast contributions and the high regard in which he was held by peers and community members alike. His passing marks the end of an era for the Adelaide Hills’ agricultural community, which now mourns the loss of a respected elder and mentor.

Ashley Graham Mason’s legacy will undoubtedly live on through his family’s continued stewardship of the land and their contributions to South Australia’s fruit-growing industry. As the community reflects on his life and achievements, they also grapple with the stark reminder of the risks associated with quad bike use, especially among the elderly. Mason’s life story, imbued with dedication, resilience, and passion for agriculture, will remain a source of inspiration for many.
