$0.00

Out of stock

Description

Come along to the farm and pick from 8 different varieties of our certified organic blueberries. 

COST – There is no entry fee for picking. You just pay for what you pick. A blueberry punnet as shown in the photo is $12. We accept both EFTPOS and cash. Our punnets are all fully home compostable.    

Please note, we do our best to make sure there are enough berries for people to pick, however we have no idea how many punnets people will actually pick on the day and so cannot guarantee how many berries will be available. Weather, such as storms, rain or wind can also blow berries off the trees. If the berries are getting low, we always do our best to contact ticket holders to make them aware.

Weather

This event will go ahead 😊 in all weather except storms.

Tickets

Our blueberry picking sessions are all ticketed events. We do this so we can limit the amount of people in the orchard, so you can have the best experience picking!

 

This is a working farm. The ground is likely uneven, damp and undoubtedly earthy. There are plants that are pollinating, insects which might sting and animals that might nip. Please watch your step, stay on the path, keep your eye on your children and be aware of the natural world. By entering the farm you understand the risks and take full responsibility for yourself and/or your children. You understand that you are entering at your own risk and assume all liabilities.

 

PLEASE NOTE – All visitors to the farm are required to step through a disinfectant shoe bath. This is required as part of our organic certification and at the moment with the threat of Foot and Mouth disease on Australia’s door step, it is extra important. To understand the seriousness of FMD, if it is detected in any animal they will be euthanized. Under the recommendation of our vets and the DPI,  if you have been to Indonesian countries, including Bali, we, unfortunately cannot have you on the farm for 14 days.  Thank you for your understanding in this very serious matter. If you have any questions please always reach out to us.

See you on the farm soon!
