The Berry Farm grow youngberries, blackberries and blueberries and during harvest time you can go the the Berry Farm and pick your own! (Harvest time is from the beginning of November until about the 20th of December for the youngberries and blackberries and from the end of November until mid January for Blueberries).
Remember to phone beforehand if you plan to pick berries - to make sure berries are available. Bring your own containers and we will weigh the containers and then charge per kilogram for the berries picked.
The best time to pick is from mid November until the second week in December. During harvest time we IQF (individually quick freeze) the berries. They are loosely frozen and packed in 1kg and 5kg bags and in boxes of 12kg or 14kg.
We sell the frozen berries throughout the year. We also make our own liqueurs, jams and syrups from the berries so come and browse around our farm store.
