NOW OPEN TILL DECEMBER 17TH. WE WILL ASSESS FRUIT AVAILABILITY CLOSER TO THE 17TH AND OPEN MORE DATES IF FRUIT IS STILL AVAILABLE.
harvesting Yellow Nectarines, Berries when available. Best chance to get some berries, Thursday Friday or Saturday morning. Candy plums expected to start around 28/11
Weekend Morning sessions are very popular but please remember we are also open afternoons
We will not take specific berry bookings anymore. If there are some ready to pick when you are here picking stone fruit you will be allowed to pick them. I can't answer the question if there will be any as I don't know how much
the customer before you might pick and we don't have all that many strawberry plants as this is our first trial year. Best advice I can offer is that Thursday, Friday and Saturday morning is most likely to have some.
Please be aware that we can't
tell you exact dates of when particular fruits harvest. It is all up to mother nature and things can change very quickly. We do our best with the estimates. There are plenty of spaces for stone fruit harvest so start planning your trip. Weekends fill quickly.
(the below video shows estimated timing)
Please take a screen shot of your receipt to bring on the day. No need to collect tickets although your receipt will say they are ready at the next trading hour. I have records but just
in case I make a mistake a screen shot would help to quickly rectify the situation.

Please understand that all bookings are required to be made via the booking site, unless for special occasions, large groups (over 20) or tour groups. Once a session is sold out there
is no more availability. We only have a small amount of berries this year but there is an amazing crop to be picked on the stone fruit.
Pricing may vary if there is an extreme circumstance but our standard pricing is
ENTRY Adult $5, Child (5-15) $3, under 5 free
$6/kg for stone fruit,
$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 without prermission from owners. If you dont want to buy it please dont pick it.
This is an ALL WEATHER event and bookings are NON REFUNDABLE. Please dress to the conditions and bring spare shoes in wet weather. Tickets will NOT be REFUNDED or TRANSFERRED TO ANOTHER DATE/TIME. (this messes
with my numbers for COVID 19 limits and defeats the purpose of taking bookings) so please be sure you are able to attend at the date and time of your booking prior to making it. Thank you for your understanding.
We appreciate you all adapting so well to this new system. It's been difficult but in these times we need to do what is best for everyone's safety.
Thank you and we hope to see you throughout the season.
