Stanthorpe resident Kerrie Stratford is the woman to beat… with a string of successful years and records in the Stanthorpe Apple and Grape Harvest Festival’s ‘longest continuous apple peel’ and ‘fastest apple peel’ competitions she is arguably the ‘best ever apple peeler on the Granite Belt’,

Kerrie’s 6.1 metre Granny Smith peel holds the current record for the longest of the Stanthorpe Apple and Grape Harvest Festival’s Apple Day and was a personal best.   (Runner-up in 2018 peeled 2.7 metres.)

Up until she was defeated at the 2020 event, Kerrie remained unbeaten for 15 years at the competition held Stanthorpe Apple and Grape Harvest Festival.

Apart from a brief practice run before the main event on Thursday, Kerrie does not prepare for her biennial challenge.

“I only do it for this, once every two years,” she said.

Longest apple peel competitors work against the clock, with a strict 10 minute limit to complete their peel.

Announcements will be made soon about the date for the Apple Peeling competitions at the 2022 Stanthorpe Apple and Grape Harvest Festival.
