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.
