Our Fruit Stall will be opening for the Season tomorrow, Saturday the 9th December. ?
Open 7 days a week from 7am – 9pm until early June 2018.
We start with Dawson cherries, new spuds and comfrey plants.??
If this hot weather keeps up our apricots will be earlier this year so hopefully around the 1st of January.?
Will keep you posted here and on our Webpage for those who haven’t ventured into the world of Facebook.
Give us a ring anytime for weather reports, fruit updates.
Ring or txt Sandra 027 464 9184 or Ruby 027 210 6090 as they will be once again running the Fruit Stall. You can reach me on 027 210 6457……I may have to get back to you as I don’t always hear it ring this time of the year.
Or you can ring our landline on 03 446 8585 day or night.
We only sell what we grow and you will like our prices.
And If we haven’t got a fruit variety you want we will recommend a Fruit Stall that will.
The weather was unkind to our early cherries so the opening of our Fruit Stall has been delayed by about 10 days, hopefully coinciding with the arrival of our spuds and Dawson Cherries. Stay tuned
Some photos of the creek in flood this afternoon during the big downpour. The creek had reached its limit so decided to detour through and around the packing shed and over the road. ? #herculesflatdownpour
Even with our cherry netting up the Starlings are looking for any oppurtunity to find a way in and attack the cherries. Thankfully Big Bertha is on the job and today her tripod arrived meaning she can now rotate automatically after every “boom”. The direction of the sound changes each time she rotates and startles the little blighters even more #cherriesnotstarlings #savethefruit #bigberthaprotectorofherculesflatfruit

Our new cherry netting was a bit late in arriving due to a slow ship!?️ Just a slight mad panic to get it up today as the birds were already attacking the still green cherries.? Thankfully the damage was minimal as Big Bertha (our bird scarer) has helped fend off the marauding flocks 😉
Our little apricots are growing up… ? #growyoubeautifulthings
From blossoms to ‘baby’ apricots
Some more blossom pics from around the Orchard ?
First night of frost fighting this season and it was a long one.? As always Little Toot the pump tractor served us well and was hard at work from midnight until 9am.
Here’s a few pics I took at first light.
