Enjoy a stroll through the flower garden near the farm’s entrance, and for only $ 10, you can pick a bunch of blooms to bring home. Visit the farm’s crop watch page for a complete listing of the variety of berries and flowers on display during your planned visit.

Meander through the market and satisfy your sweet tooth with freshly-made icing-topped doughnuts or sky-high berry pies, or pick up some freshly-picked produce grown steps from the market’s door. Browse through the eclectic garden-themed goodies, and take home a memento from your visit.

Designed as a place to play as a family, the newly-developed Fresh Family Fun Field will teach your kids about farm facts in a fun and interactive way. Go head-to-head in a life-sized, berry-themed game of Guess Who, channel your inner child and enjoy a round of tether (berry) ball, or go for a bounce on the giant jumping pads.

Don’t leave the family fun play area without taking a spin on Farmer Alf’s Tractor Training Field, where you and your little ones can test your tractor skills by pedalling around the winding track.

Cool off with a berry-filled cone, or lunch on a savoury corn pizza to satisfy your appetite after a full day of play. The Porch Restaurant offers a great range of Summer treats, or head to The KB Corral for some piping hot waffles topped with seasonal berries and whipped cream.

Surrounded by 200 acres of freshly-grown berries, it just makes sense for the property to boast a winery, which features a wide range of award-winning berry wines. Pop in for a quick tasting and soak up the Western-themed decor in the cozy chic space, or plan your visit around a pre-booked wine-tasting experience which includes a cheese board and an educational (and entertaining) tasting tour of the diverse wine selections available. Bring the whole family – kids are welcome too!
