Thanks to everyone who visited Campanella Cottage over the past 5 weeks. The farm-gate is now officially closed.

Campanella Cottage For Sale

The time has come for George and Jane to retire from farm-life. The entire Campanella estate was sub-divided into two properties (Campanella and Campanella Cottage). Campanella Cottage was listed today including the four bedroom house, sheds/garage, established gardens, rain-forest, part of the paddock and chestnut trees.

Green Walnuts late this year

Green walnuts have not developed adequately for picking just yet, but should be ready in the week leading up to Christmas.

We will open for green walnut picking on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd December from 9.00 am, and then 26th – 28th December if reachable supply remains.

Gloves should be worn for picking to avoid staining your hands. Hitting, climbing of trees and ladders are not permitted.

After green walnut season, we will not open the farm gate again until March 2019 when the mature nuts begin to fall.
