Chestnuts and limited walnuts available

Chestnuts have fallen over the past two days and are ready for gather-your-own.

The farmgate will open between 9am and 3pm this Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 March.

A limited amount of walnuts are available due to the Gang Gang parrots who have once again stripped most of our crop prematurely.

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.

Green Walnuts Finished

All the green walnuts in  reach were cleared today.

The farmgate will now remain closed until chestnut and walnuts are ready to collect from the ground in mid-March.

Wishing you and your families a happy holiday season, and a wonderful New Year in 2018.

Green walnuts available 17th December

Green walnuts have not developed adequately for picking just yet, but we hope they will be ready by 17th December December, 9:00am – 2:00pm.

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

Please note, the crop is small due to pruning in October. It is recommended you call prior to visiting 4756 2035 to check there is enough produce for you.

We will not open the farm gate again until March 2018 when the mature nuts begin to fall.
