Our Blueberries

BYO containers are welcomed. Cash sales only — no cards

Ready Picked Blueberries

Preordered only

Ordering

All our ready picked blueberries are now sold only to order (minimum order 1kg). Orders are opened on our facebook page in January as each flush of berries ripen. Please include your mobile number with your order so we can text you when it is ready.

Check our facebook page for variations

Fresh Blueberries

These are our premium berries. They are ready to be enjoyed fresh or in desserts. They are also great to freeze for a year round supply. We can supply them ready frozen too – just let us know when you order through our Facebook page.

Sometimes undersized or under/over ripe blueberries are available frozen in 1 kg bags at a reduced price. These are suitable for baking and jam making.

Access and Parking

Early in the season (before Pick Your Own starts) you are invited to drive down to our shed door to collect your order of ready picked blueberries (walking pace only – track shared with our pickers).

Once PYO starts parking is only available outside our front fence. We require 24/7 access so please park well clear of our gateway and access track.

Pick Your Own

Usually offered from late January to early March

What We Offer and Expect

Welcome to our farm. We love sharing our beautiful property and delicious blueberries. However, to protect our plants, livelihood and valuable crop, entry is conditional on agreeing to the following expectations:
  1. Directly supervise your children (please keep children beside the responsible adult).
  2. Pick only ripe blue berries, leave all others to ripen for later.
  3. Observe our no drop policy to reduce waste and berries on the ground. This will deter pests and protect our valuable crop
  4. Eat no berries until paid for (no sampling). Pick, pay, then eat.
  5. Treat our 30+ year old plants very gently. Move slowly in the rows and pick carefully so that no plants are damaged.
  6. Walk carefully on uneven ground and near mulch and drip lines to avoid tripping and kicking lines out of alignment.
  7. Take your rubbish home with you. We have no garbage collection at the farm.
  8. No smoking

 

We do not offer PYO on declared Code Red Fire Days in the Central District.

No buses.

PYO entry is free

Please pick carefully and gently.

Please respect the fact that we offer PYO to allow as many people as possible the opportunity to purchase a bulk supply of fresh blueberries at minimal price, whilst at the same time limiting the impact on our bushes.

Bring along a picnic to enjoy under our shady Chestnut and Walnut trees.

Dogs are welcome, but please keep them on leads and out of the blueberry rows.

 

Parking

Please park well clear of our 24/7 access track and gateway.

 

How Easy

Once invited onto our property you will be greeted by one of our happy team who will supply you with a bucket and an introduction to blueberry picking. Alternatively, you are welcome to bring your own containers.

Then it’s off to the designated row and on with the picking. As a guide, 1 kilogram of berries is about 2 litres in volume. When you’ve gathered your bounty take your berries to the shed to be weighed, paid for and bagged.

 

Stock Up

Because blueberries freeze so well many of our visitors have a happy family day picking a year’s supply of blueberries for freezing, particularly for those who enjoy blueberry muffins, smoothies, pies, pancakes, jam, sauces, muesli, yoghurt and crumbles.

You can’t get any fresher than PYO. Enjoy.
