Our Cherry and Berry Season for 2018 is now officially over.
With no rain to split the cherries and bird nets in place we were able to sell all our cherries.- no splits and no bird picks! Even though they did not get as much water as other years they produced large fruit and plenty of it.
Our berries were starting to feel the effects of the two extremely hot days before the BIG RAIN came. The rain finished them off. That didn’t matter as they had produced an abundant crop and we were so happy to see the rain! Our empty dams now have some water in them.
A surprise producer in our orchard this year was our solitary apricot tree. usually it just produces enough apricots for joy to make her apricot jam. this year it was so prolific that we were able to sell large delicious apricots at our Wangaratta and Moyhu December markets.
Thank you to all our customers who helped to make the 2018 season a successful one.
We are sorry that we won’t be at the Mansfield, Yarrawonga and Wangaratta Twilight markets as previously advertised, but we will be at Wangaratta in January with fresh large brown onions, Zucchinis, freshly made Apricot Jam, our special Elderflower Concentrate/cordial and heaps of other goodies. Come and check our stall out.
We do have frozen Brambleberries in stock, especially for those of you who like to put a few on your cereal each morning or drop them in your yoghurt. Ring us if you are interested in FROZEN BERRIES.

Four friendly tourists from Estonia visited our Farm Gate today after discovering CHERRYTIME on Google.
They were impressed with our freshly picked and packed cherries and brambleberries.- and purchased quite a large quantity of both to eat during their remaining few days in Ausrtralia.
We hope they enjoy their fruit and wish them a safe trip home to Estonia.
