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.

Easter weekend 2018 – gather your own chestnuts

Campanella Cottage will open the farm gates between 9am and 3pm on Friday 30 March. Depending on the number of nuts left, we may also open on Easter Sunday.

Visitors must bring and wear appropriate clothing including:

  • wet weather gear recommended
  • foot wear suitable for the farm paddock
  • gloves to handle chestnuts and walnuts, gloves not provided on site.

We reserve the right to refuse entry to the farm if visitors are not wearing appropriate footwear.

$8 per kilo. Cash only – no credit card or EFTPOS facilities.
