Blueberry season

Even Blueberries have an Autumn pause

Even Blueberries have an Autumn pause

Blueberries have a relatively short season in South Australia from December until February.

One of the great challenges we face is maintaining crop supply to meet the pick-your-own demand. We find that we often need to close early or skip whole days or weeks when picking has been heavy, or the crop light, or the weather unfavourable for harvest. The joys of nature!

It pays to check our Twitter stream on the day you plan to visit our farm for our daily availability report.

Crop Updates via Twitter
  • While the weather stays cool the ripening will be slow. We will update this site more frequently when the fruit starts colouring up.,
  • The blueberry punnets in the supermarkets at present generally come from northern NSW and have lower chill requirements than our varieties.,
  • Our earliest berries should ripen about mid-December. Meanwhile we are planting and repairing recent storm damage to the bird netting.,
  • Sorry, no fruit left to keep shop open. We won't be opening on 11th or 12th, as we had hoped. Let us hope for a better season next summer.,
  • Most bushes have grown well and look lush. This should give us a bigger crop next year, and hopefully less people missing out.,
