Frequently asked questions
When is the farm open?
We are open every day over the fresh berry season, January to mid-March.
Off-season, we are open on Friday afternoons and from 8am to late on Saturdays.
If you are passing and the gate is open, feel free to come in.
What if there is nobody in the farm shop?
Sometimes we are working in the back paddock. Beep your horn or call us on 0428 858 761.
Do you deliver?
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer a delivery service at this stage. Orders placed on our website are for pick-up at the farm.
Let us know if this is a service that would be useful for you.
Can I nominate a day or time to pick up my order at the farm?
Yes! If you put in an online order, please add any details to the box labelled “Add a note to your order” on the shopping cart page.
Are the berries sprayed?
We grow chemical-free berries which means we do not use chemical herbicides or pesticides. We do use some organic sprays such as Slasher which has no lasting spray residue.
What blueberries do you grow?
We grow 3 varieties of blueberries:
- O'Neals, which are a firm fruit with great flavour. They are an excellent keeping quality berry.
- Brigittas, which are our main crop. These are large sweet pale berries that taste beautiful.
- Elliots, our late-cropping berry; a firm berry with a robust flavour.
All of our berries are ideal for eating fresh and for freezing.
When does the berry season start?
Our O'Neal berries ripen in December. The Brigitta berries are ready to harvest in January and the Elliotts fruit in late January / early February.
There are always seasonal variations depending on the weather conditions.
Can we pick our own berries?
Yes, we have pick-your-own days in January and February.
Should we wash our blueberries before eating them?
Blueberries have a protective coating (called the bloom) and do not need to be washed.
If you really do want to wash them, do so just before eating.
How do we store blueberries?
Keep them in an open container in the fridge.
To freeze blueberries, spread them out on the base of a container. Once frozen, you can put the into a smaller container or freezer bags.
Hide them somewhere where no-one else can find them!
Are your chickens free range?
Yes, they have a chicken run next to our veggie garden.
