Water Water Everywhere

It has been bucketing down with rain all night and it hasn’t stop yet.
It’s either a feast or a famine around here.

38 degrees yesterday and things were bone dry and now it’s 12 degrees and everything is drenched.
Better break out the water wings.
We have some P.Y.O Nectarines still available but we have finished our P.Y.O Peaches.
If you do want to pick Nectarines then I advise that you bring some wet weather gear or ring us to see what the weather is doing.

P.Y.O Still Available

Well still have plenty of P.Y.O Nectarines available.
P.Y.O Peaches are getting a bit short now but there are still a good amount.

The temperature is meant to get up to 30 degrees today but there is also meant to be high cloud with it so it should be ideal conditions for P.Y.O as you won’t have to worry about getting roasted by the sun!!
(Disclaimer: If the cloud clears and you do get roasted then I didn’t say that!!!)

Running Late!

Running late this morning.
A pipe burst in the orchard so it was all hands on deck!!

We have started our P.Y.O Sunglow Nectarines and P.Y.O Haven Peaches.
We expect both to be finished by Sunday evening so it is best to get in early.

On the Stall we have Bon Chretien Pears, 5kg bags for $5, and Gravenstein Apples, an early Apple variety which is a great eater or cooker, 2.5kg bags for $5.

P.Y.O Nectarines and Peaches Start Again Tomorrow

We will be having P.Y.O Peaches and Nectarines available from tomorrow on.
As always they will be $1.90/kg.
Because of their popularity we expect to be finished them by Sunday evening.

We will also start our Bon Chretien Pears tomorrow for $1/kg (they are sold in 10kg bags).


Not much to report today guys.

We are currently waiting for our Peaches and Nectarines to ripen up.
We start P.Y.O on them on Saturday.

Apart from the that it is freezing!
Mom and I almost got frostbite packing fruit this morning!!!

Hopefully it warms up soon!!!!

We Need Sun!!!!

Due to a lack of sun we have  run out of ripe P.Y.O Haven Peaches.
P.Y.O will commence again on Saturday once the rest of the Peaches have had a couple of days to ripen up.
Sorry for this inconvenience!!!

P.Y.O “Sunglow” Nectarines will also commence on Saturday for $1.90/kg.

Packing Fruit in the Cold is Not Recommended!

It’s official; Mum and I are frozen!!!!!

You try packing fruit at 5 in the morning when the temperature is a whole 5 degrees!!!!
It’s not fun!!!!

It’s meant to get up to 24 degrees today so that will be good(once it arrives!).
We still have P.Y.O Haven Peaches available at $1.90/kg and at the moment they are brilliant for preserving.


Rained all night rather heavily.
It has cleared up now though so it should be a reasonable day.

We still have some Haven Peaches available for P.Y.O and we hope to have them for the rest of the week.

Wind is on the Way!

We are meant to have 120kph winds coming in later on today so we are hoping that they won’t do too much damage.
It would be nice to NOT have all our unripe Omega plums crash to the  ground.

We have plenty of P.Y.O Haven Peaches available at $1.90/kg.

They are great for eating or preserving.

We also have 2nds boxes of Haven Peaches on the Stall for $2.50/kg.

P.Y.O Havens

The weather isn’t too crash hot today.
The winds are what one can describe as gusty and there are meant to be some showers later on.

We will be starting P.Y.O Haven Peaches today for $1.90/kg.
We also have 2nds boxes of Haven Peaches on the Stall for $2.50/kg.

We hope the wind doesn’t hit our Omegas too hard as we have a really nice crop and they are only a month or so away from being ready!!!!!
Oh well, time will tell.
