After a couple of nasty days of atrocious weather 😳😳😱🥶I am pleased to announce we have survived what nature chucked at us…….nerves are a bit fraught though 😬😬😬
Starting from tomorrow PYO will be back on track so the Moorparks and Stevens Favourite will be all go ☺️
The nectarines are still a few days away – will keep you posted 👍
Black Amber plums will be on the Stall as from tomorrow as will Billington and Shiro plums.
Black Amber are yellow flesh and delicious, Billington are red flesh and are great for eating or sauce/bottling and Shiro are yellow flesh and great for eating and making jam.
To our Southland customers we should still have PYO apricots from the weekend onwards, but if we don’t have them I will be able to send you to other Fruit Stalls who will definitely have them. You will not miss out ☺️
So very sad for all you guys affected by the flooding….words simply cannot express how we feel 😞😞<3 <3
Fruit update 😊😊
Well what a day we have all had!!
Finally the weather forecast was correct….we did indeed have rain and plenty of it! ☔☔🌧️🌧️😫😫
Some brave souls ventured into the Orchard to PYO their apricots and actually had a great time albeit a very wet time 😊🌧️☂️
With a bit of luck, tomorrow will be okay🤞🤞🤞
But there is good news…. there is plenty of Moorpark and Roxburgh Red apricots still on the trees for PYO and from tomorrow on we will have PYO Stevens Favourite apricots available as well 😁😁
The plums and Bon Cretien pears are taking their time in ripening 🤔🤨🤨 Oh no hurry guys…..yes I am kidding, just hurry up and ripen please 😬😬😬
Black Amber plums are probably a week away and the pears are maybe 10 days away 🤞
Mum, (Sandra) has never had such a crazy season in all of her 30 seasons on the Orchard 😳😳

Had a busy day with PYO Moorparks – it’s been absolutely wonderful catching up with so many people I have known since I was little 🥰

The plums are lagging behind 🤔☺️ but we have Shiro plums which are yellow flesh and great for eating and jam. Billington plums will be on the Stall sometime this week ☺️
