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.

Now open Saturday and Sunday mornings for Pick Your Own fruit.
Bilpin Springs Orchard traditionally sent stonefruit and apples to Flemington Markets. The transition to a purely “Pick Your Own” orchard began 1990 by replanting 12 acres with many blocks of just 100 trees, enabling us to offer you a wide variety of deciduous fruits from late January to June.
These include apples, pears, nashi and quinces; persimmon, figs and citrus; and more recently, blueberries.
For updated information on when you can pick fruit, visit our website www.bilpinspringsorchard.com.au or ring the information line 02 4567 1294 before visiting.
