Glenbernie Orchard

Glenbernie Orchard is located within the beautiful Illawarra mountain escarpment, approximately 30kms north of Wollongong in NSW. The new Dharrawal National Park created in 2012 is the farm's closest neighbour.

Ted and Ellen Fahey began the farm in 1939 making a living from selling their home grown eggs and vegetables.

Their son Edward Fahey (Ted Jnr) planted the first apple tree in 1952. Ted Jnr continued to grow the business assisted by his wife Ruth. The family purchased additional land in the 1980's bringing the total possible planting area to around 100 acres. The land is very fertile with a climate suited to growing a variety of fruit and vegetables. Ted and Ruth’s eldest son, Glenn, now manages the farm producing apples, peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots and persimmons.

The farm’s retail shop, the ‘Apple Shack’ is located on the farm. You can visit the farm to buy fresh fruit and seasonal produce,Apple cider, apple cider vinegar, jams, preserves and honey 7 days a week.

Apples are sold year round including varieties such as Royal Gala, Jonathan, Red Delicious, Fuji, Granny Smith and Pink Lady.

Peaches, nectarines and other stone fruits are available from November to February.

Persimmons are not available this year.

TCP Day Tours

Pick Your Own Food
View Profile

~ A totally new concept in shopping tours.

~ ARE you aware that the produce you buy on a TCP Farmgate Tour is ultra fresh and the quality and life span is far superior to supermarket produce? By cutting out the middleman you can save money and food miles. The farmer can often supply information about how their produce is grown, harvested and how they themselves cook or prepare it!

~ IT is reassuring to know that you can make a difference because you are supporting the diminishing farming community of Sydney’s outskirts.

~ THE tours are run every second Friday and the usual stops are, Honey Producer, Olive Grove, Fig Farm, Egg Supplier, Smallgoods Manufacturer (Italian Deli Butcher) and Vegetable Farm. But depending on your groups interests you can have a tailor-made tour to suit your needs.

~ IN the appropriate seasons there is also fruit picking, two stops are missed out to go fruit picking. Contact TCP Farmgate Tours on 0424 188 779 to find out what fruit is in season for picking.

Clyde River Berry Farm

Parking Pick Your Own
View: South Coast MAP - Ref: 97 View Profile

Situated right on the banks of the pristine Clyde River the farm is open every day of December and January between 10.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m except for Christmas Day.

Clyde River Berry Farm is a pick your own berry farm that specializes in blueberries along with many other types of berries and has been in operation now for over thirty five years.

The Berry Farm provides blueberries for pick-your-own throughout December and January and local farmers markets from November until Christmas. Other berries are grown solely for pick-your-own and are subject to seasonal variation.

Surrounded by a pristine environment, the Clyde River Berry Farm invites you to take a forest drive into the hinterland and to the 'hands on' experience of picking your own berries.

Our Farm Policy

The Clyde Valley's microclimate was chosen as being highly suited to blueberries in particular. Our policy has always been to impact as little as possible on the ecosystem and to co habit with the wildlife. The farm's geographic isolation means that we produce in a healthy, dynamic and biodiverse environment, where the menagerie of birds and insects can work in our favour by keeping populations in balance. We have utilised as many sustainable techniques of production as possible and have a tolerant approach to insect dynamics. We use biological controls when necessary. In these ways we have tried to maintain the integrity of the area whilst producing food commercially.
