Fords Farm is closed for picking mandarins. We will open next year in June 2019. Check our website for more information.
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 15 years and has developed with help from our customers.
Unfortunately due to heavy traffic in the area and the condition of the roads we can no longer cater for large coaches. Small buses are welcome on weekends as long as a booking is made.
We cater for International Tour Groups who wish to visit the farm for educational purposes outside the season. Phone for more information on these tours.
We look forward to welcoming visitors in June each year to pick mandarins, oranges, lemons, limes and in July cumquats.
There is an entry fee of $5.00 per car, thereafter you only pay for what you pick, we charge by the kg.
We have a small picnic area set aside for you to sit and enjoy the quiet bush surroundings. Take a stroll through the orchard to visit and feed our sheep once you have had your picnic.
Visit our “shed” for jams, chutney, cordial and honey all from produce grown on the farm. The year we have infused vinegars and infused oils such as garlic, chilli and rosemary, along with infused salts and sugars for the adventurous cook.
