************************** UPDATE 30 November 2015 - 10.45pm************************************************

We open for the main season on the weekend of Sat-Sun 5-6 December. Lots of fruit will be ripe then.

We'll also be open the day before - Friday 4 December - for those who can make it on weekdays.

Sour cherries probably won't be ripe until a bit later.


2015 is shaping up to be a good season. It's quite big crop (for once) so we'll hold the prices at the same levels as last year - hopefully that'll be a win-win if the rain will hold off from now on.

To avoid confusion for new customers, here's what our frontage looks like. It's on the right hand side 760 metres up the road.

And you drive down the gumtree lined driveway shown here

to our car park and sheds.

You may sometimes find other signs for PYO Cherries before you get to us - that's not us. Nowhere else will you get the same quality for the price as here. That's what we're renowned for.

We may not always put a sign at the end of the street - that doesn't mean we're not open. Come straight up the road 750m and look for our driveway n the right.

Most of the cherries here are BIG by most reckonings - certainly bigger than what you'll find in the supermarket - but more importantly better quality - particularly for flavour. Our varieties have been chosen primarily with flavour and eating quality in mind.

We don't get involved in chasing enormous size because that involves selecting varieties with less than optimal eating characteristics and sometimes unnatural practices which we don't use. We don't use GA - we don't spray foliar fertilisers on the developing fruit - we don't use excessive watering - nor any other tricks. All those things add to size but detract from other qualities. We just let nature take its course.

Everything here is done as far as possible the natural way.

Hours are 10:00am - 6:00pm but you need to come before 5:00pm to allow time to do it. Unless you can pick as fast as this guy that is.
NB the sour cherries which we sell are not under-ripe sweet cherries - they are small and always  sour and intended for cooking etc. See our recipes page.

For most people it takes between 30 minutes and 1 hour to fill a 5kg bucket with sour cherries. These machines do it a bit quicker.


Don't forget that the best dessert at this time of year is Cherry Clafoutis.  It's easy to make and if you do it the French way you don't even need to pit the cherries.
