Pick Your Own

January 3rd 2021

2270 Bells Line of Rd Bilpin.

This time last year we were in the midst of fires, now it’s rain.

We have what is looking to be a very good crop of fruit for 2021.

All of the apple varieties  have good crops and provided the the weather is kind to us and Covid allows us to do pick your own it should be a good season.

We don’t expect to have apples before February though we may have some stone fruit in January subject to the weather being kind.

Keep checking the website or get on our newsletter list for latest updates. 

Thank you and see you in 2021
