the strawberry forest, bacchus marsh

Well this is genius! The Strawberry Forest at Bacchus Marsh is not only pretty as you weave your way around the strawberry vines, the vertical vines makes it so easy to see and pick those perfect strawberries. This is the only picking place in Australia that grows their strawberries vertically - it also means they can produce so many more strawberries in a smaller space.  The Strawberry Forest is definitely on Mammas fave picking list.  We brought our own little baskets but they supply you with a container that holds about 1kg.  Mamma says grab as many as you can cause you are sure to eat a whole kilo just on the way home, they taste absolutely magnificent!

Mamma's special mention: The Strawberry Forest is part of The Fruits of Life - the fresh produce farm and shop (full of fresh veggies from the farm and fantastic gourmet products) . Be sure to stop here to grab some supplies for dinner that night
