'Pick Your Own' Stonefruit with Tractor Ride

30 Nov to 22 Dec 2019

Saturdays and Sundays until Christmas
Picking sessions must be booked - from $15
Glenbernie Orchard, Darkes Forest

Ever wanted to pick fruit fresh from the tree? 

Do you love cooking with fresh, local and in season foods? Want to cut down food miles and buy direct from the farmer? 

Come with us to pick stone fruit! We will take you to what ever is best at the time of your visit. We grow delicious peaches and nectarines. Different types ripen throughout November and December. Get orders from your friends and pick some for them too (that way you have even more fun picking the delicious fruit) !!!

We have designed this session for those who are serious about picking lots of fresh fruit.    

 

  • After a brief safety induction and biosecurity procedures we will take a tractor ride through the orchard to our fresh fruit. 
  • We'll give a fruit picking lesson. We will show you how to select and pick the best ones. 
  • You then pick what you want to take home. Fruit picked to take home will be charged at the current market rate per kg.

There will be great photo opportunities, so be sure to pack your camera!

This is a great way for children to learn and get involved in healthy eating! 

PLEASE NOTE: The session charge does not include the fruit you are taking home. Fruit picked will be charged per kg at current market price. Please only pick what you intend to pay for. Prices per kg do change as the market changes. We try to be very fair when setting prices. 

  • Picking itself is so much fun we encourage you to talk to your friends and neighbours and get orders from them, so you can have the fun of picking even more!!! 

 

Our experiences run in most weather conditions, so make sure you bring weather appropriate clothing (it can be wet or hot even when not forecast), closed in shoes are essential, a hat, sunscreen and your camera for some happy snaps!
