People tell us we have the best oranges they have ever eaten. Is it the chicken manure or the fact we don’t use chemical sprays on the trees? Could be a combination of the two, however we thought we would share the experience with others.
Visit the Wilson’s Wyuna Farms, hear about the history of this fourth generational farm and how it has evolved since Lorraine’s father, Ray Walpole, settled here in 1935, aged 15. Or just chat with Rodger, Lorraine, Greg or Kate and pick your own oranges to take home.
Bus tours or group bookings available – prior booking essential via phone or email.
Open Season: 1 Jun 2024 until 31 Jul 2024
Weekends by BOOKINGS ONLY. You can book through our website from May 2024
We open for picking first week of June, bookings will be available through our website from May for first two weeks of our season. More bookings will be made available after that date.
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.
