Ford’s Farm is a Pick Your Own citrus orchard specialising in Mandarins. Our first mandarin of the season is the Satsuma, a seedless variety, easy to peel, full of juice and very popular with children. This year we have a reasonable crop of Satsumas, but not as many Imperials due to the floods last year.
Ford’s Farm is nestled on the banks of the Hawkesbury River, 15 minutes from Wiseman’s Ferry. The citrus orchard was established over 50 years ago by the Ford family (some original trees still produce fruit – the Emperor Mandarins). It has been a Pick Your Own orchard for over 21 years and has developed with help from our customers.
We look forward to welcoming visitors in June each year to pick mandarins, oranges, lemons, limes. We close once all mandarins have been picked and re-open in July for cumquats. Unfortunately we cannot allow any picnics in the orchard this year.
Visit our “shed” for jams, chutney, cordial and honey all from produce grown on the farm. The honey is different every year as the bees forage on whatever is available at the time. It is pure with no additives in the honey.
BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL through our website. Bookings will open in May 2024.
recently the NSW State Government amended the status of all Pick Your Own farms and has limited the number of people we have on the farm at any one time.
