Pick Your Own Mandarins

Open all weekend, weekdays by appointment, during the season.

Come and meet living history producing Hawkesbury produce since 1836. First at Mangrove Creek near Spencer, with our current orchard at Wisemans Ferry established in 1901 - the year of Federation, by Great Great Grandfather, Alfred Watkins. Come and meet his grandson John Watkins.

The varieties of mandarins that we grow are; Imperial, a very popular variety, extra juicy and extra large this season, an old family favourite is the Emperor mandarin, grown for many generations, easy to peel with a great flavour, and the last variety of the season is the Hickson, which is available from the middle of August, my personal favourite.

We have installed a 50 people undercover seating and tables with BBQ facilities. You can also bring a blanket and picnic on the grounds.

Great Juicy Crop - Mandarins - Family Fun - Baby Animal Farm and lovely Fresh Honey

We also grow cumquats which we start picking from the middle of July.

We are a member of Freshcare, a safe food program, which enables us to meet the large supermarkets requirements for food safety.

Our farm offers a pick your own orchard with shed packing facilities for any large bulk orders.

Great for the kids, very tasty and good for you at the same time! Free samples are available for everyone and of course it's also available for you to purchase and take home.

There is also plenty of room for parking and the kids to play. Bring a football and picnic lunch and have some fun in a wonderful setting.

To get here, take the Old Northern Road to Wisemans Ferry and turn right behind the Hotel onto Singleton Road. We are 11 kilometres down the road on the left hand side, the orchard has plenty of signs so we are very easy to find.
