Green Walnuts December 2017

Green_walnutsCampanella Cottage will be opening the farm gate for picking green walnuts ($8.00/kg) on 9th, 10th, 17th and 23rd of December 9:00am – 2:00pm.  At this time the outer green shell and inner shell is soft and a needle can be passed through both.  Nuts at this stage are suitable for pickling or making preserves.  Gloves should be worn for picking to avoid staining your hands.

Its recommended you call prior to visiting 4756 2035 to check there is enough produce for you. Hitting, climbing of trees and ladders are not permitted.

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

 

Farm Gate Closed

Chestnuts finished the weekend of 16/17 April 2016. We had only a small number of walnuts again this year due to the gang-gangs. The walnuts we had were finished the weekend of 9/10 April.

The farm gate is now closed.

Green walnuts may be available in December – we will post more information at that time.

Best wishes,

Jane and George

Weekend of 9th & 10th April

The farm gate will be open from 9am to 3pm both days providing there are still nuts on the paddock to be gathered. Supply is often running short by Sunday afternoon.

Despite our efforts to control the Gang-Gangs, there are very few walnuts available.

Remember to bring your own gloves and wear covered shoes.

We expect more chestnuts to fall and be available the weekend after Easter.

Cash only – no credit card or EFTPOS facilities.

Chestnuts this Easter weekend

The farm gate will be open from 9am to 3pm on Friday and Saturday of the Easter weekend. We may also open Sunday and Monday but only if there are still chestnuts to gather. Despite our efforts to control the Gang-Gangs, there are very few walnuts available.

Remember to bring your own gloves and wear covered shoes.

We expect more chestnuts to fall and be available the weekend after Easter.

Walnuts and Chestnuts – start 19/20 March

Due to weather conditions, chestnuts and walnuts are not yet falling and the farm gate will not be open until the weekend of 19/20 March. Check here for further updates.

  • Opening times are from 9:00am to 3:00pm weekends only.
  • Footware and hand protection are not provided, please ensure you bring adequate protection for walking in damp farm paddocks and for handling spiky burrs and nuts.
  • Prices remain at $8.00 per kilo for all nuts collected off the paddocks.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
