A quick check on the weather report. Sunny till 3pm reported the forecast. Well, that was good enough for us to zoom to Ye Olde Berry Farm at their new location 479, Tauwhare Road.
If you are thinking of visiting the farm any time soon, it’s advisable to wear gum boots as the ground could be splashy and muddy especially with the unpredictable wet and dry spells we have been getting lately. Oh yes, don’t forget the rain jacket too. Lest it rains.
Unfortunately, the blueberries aren’t ready for gathering but nevertheless they still have some frozen ones in the store.
Just look at those blackberries. What a beauty eh? 🙂
Next, we went to the raspberry section. Now I know why there’s a hole in the middle of the fruit. Hurhur.
Next, the highlight of the day, the strawberries. The section looked modestly small but don’t be easily fooled. I’ve found the hugest strawberries on this very same plot of land. 😉
Summer 2017; We came back to this awesome place and was pleasantly surprised to see that the strawberry shrubs are now ready to pick at waist level. The parents had no problem filling up their buckets with these tiny precious treasures.
I’m also happy that there’s a separate paying booth one for the PYO and the other for the ice cream and other purchases. Less queue, less hassle, happy us! 😉
Good thinking guys at #yeoldeberryfarm ! 😉
