the time to read EVERYTHING on this page. I recieve many messages a day and am finding it difficult to respond as well as work (I pick and pack, serve, take bookings, do honey bottling/deliveries, staff rosters, ordering and bookwork ), Mum (and sleep
sometimes. Ha Ha!!). Most of the questions are answered here. Don't hesitate to text message 0419688039 if you can't find an answer here though. I will respond ASAP. I can't listen to voice messages so please text instead. We need you to be aware of our rules
prior to your visit so you know how it all works. Please read all signage on arrival also. Thankyou for your understanding. Jaime...

Pricing may vary if there is an extreme circumstance but our standard pricing is
Adult $5, Child (5-15) $3, under 5 free
$6/kg for stone fruit, (nectarines, plums, peaches)
$6/kg for tomatoes and eggplant
$10/kg Strawberries and
YOU ARE REQUIRED TO PURCHASE EVERYTHING YOU PICK.
We ask that you respect our orchard, although we understand you wish to taste the fruit we ask that you taste only one, ( NO STRAWBERRY TASTING PERMITTED
AS THERE IS JUST NOT ENOUGH). The rest you are required to purchase. We dont want to see our fruit which is only on the trees once a year all over the ground and wasted. Please understand that this is once a year income for us and if you are caught disrespecting
the orchard we do have the right to ask you to leave. We also want you to be aware that if you pick in an undesignated area and the fruit is immature you will be charged $20/kg. We know many cultures like green plums and small green nectarines but if these
were to be full size then they would weigh 4 times as much so we will charge more. Our major season only lasts 10 weeks max a year and we require the income to survive till the next one. We appreciate your understanding on this. We don't like to post this
sort of thing although we work hard all year to produce the fruit and it is very heart breaking for us to see it droppped all over the orchard or picked at a tiny size or unripe without prermission from owners. If you dont want to buy it please dont pick it.
Ifyou are not told you can pick it on that day then it is not ready.
This is an ALL WEATHER event. Please dress to the conditions and bring spare shoes in wet weather.
We appreciate you all adapting so well to the booking system this year. It's been a challenge but in these times we needed to do what is best for everyone's safety.
Thank you and we hope to see soon
Jaime and the Canoelands team
