naturipe cherries, strawberry and fruit picking, bacchus marsh

Strawberries are the all time fave fruit for most kiddos - they are the little red dynamites of the fruit family so it's no wonder that the idea of strawberry picking fancy free in fields of them is quite popular! Mamma's kiddos particularly love to eat and pick them by the punnet load so this is not only a fun excursion with the kids, it can be a cost effective and educational way to get your fruit fix. The fruit picking at Naturipe itself is easy and great fun for all ages (babes in carriers through to teenagers!) the 'ripe' areas are signed and simple to get to from the car park with staff giving you directions on where to go. Oh and how does everything taste? Absolutely incredible.
Once, you have your strawberries or cherries, why not see what else is ripe for the pickin'?!
We often get bucket loads of apples, nectarines and peaches when in season and of course cherries when they are available too!

Mamma's tips for fruit picking:
- wear long sleeves, hat and sunscreen to protect you from the sun
- wear closed toes shoes (it can get a bit dusty/muddy)
- get there early to avoid disappointment or CALL before going out there to double check what they have ready for picking on the day 0419 340 363
- they only accept cash so come prepared
- there is SOMETIMES an icecream van here but otherwise no other food or drinks available

Mamma's special mentions: If you are after a spot of  hard earned lunch after some farming - head into Bacchus Marsh to Baby Blacks
