pick your own flowers @ mannerim stables co, marcus hill

What kind of picking HEAVEN is THIS?  Mamma's love of picking was limited to fruit until she discovered this gorgeous flower farm on the Bellarine Peninsula.  This whole area is full of adventure and amazing sights and this place is no exception.  The beauty of seeing this picking field full of colour is a gift in itself, but when you can get involved and have you and the kiddies discover and learn something it really makes it special. You can bring your own basket (or trug) or borrow one from the guys here. They supply the cutters and some notes on best ways to pick and you are off.  Mamma visited when the lovely Zinnia were in full bloom (end of Summer).

That is not all though.  Head up the the amazing Stables farm gate store where you can purchase some chemical free veggies, some more flowers or their specialty - bulbs for your own garden.  The farm gate is open during the week but picking is usually limited to weekends (check the Facebook page before you come for open picking days!) - you may buy some ready picked flowers from the flower cart if you are swinging by Mon-Fri though.

Mamma's special mention: Lunch at Basil's Farm is a must, or drop into Piknik for a bite and to grab some homemade relish.
