PICKING STRAWBERRIES

We recently visited SunnyRidge Strawberry Farm on the Mornington Peninsula, where visitors can pay a fee and enter the farm to pick their own strawberries. We have visited this farm on several other occasions in the past and we've always had a good time, picking the berries and taking away several kilos to make jam.

The operations of the farm have expanded and the attached shop and café have grown quite a great deal in the last few years. The containers that one is given to fill with strawberries have also grown smaller and the picking fee has increased, but at least the berries are still bright red, sweet and juicy...

  1. I like that the rows are raised up. Much easier and cleaner to pick than low rows.
    Have a wonderful week-end!

  2. The grandchildren love to pick strawberries on the peninsula. Before our first visit, they used to think that strawberries grew in punnets!
