Blueberries are so delicious. We enjoy them on their own or with pancakes, muffins or with just ice cream! This versatile little flavour explosion is even better when you pick it yourself straight from the bush!
Set in picturesque hills the farm is nestled in the volcanic soil of Mount Buninyong. Apparently the perfect ground for plump juicy berry growing!
Mamma always jumps at the chance to show the kids exactly where the food we love comes from. The Blueberry farm is located in Buninyong (5 - 10 minutes out of Ballarat) and the blueberries are easy pickings. You and the family are given a briefing and some rules on arrival regarding techniques for perfect plucking and then grab a bucket and away you go!
When you have picked what you need you take your bucket to be weighed and pay for your blueberry booty (cash only). It is a bargain when you compare it to supermarket pricing and you really can't put a price on the freshness and experience of fruit picking.
Mamma's special mentions: Sovereign Hill is JUST around the corner!
