Berries

Who doesn’t love fresh berries?

Berries are nutritious and low in calories. They are versatile, can be eaten fresh or stewed, alone or with cream or ice-cream. Berries make beautiful jams, jellies, toppings, pies and tarts. They can be frozen with no special preparation, simply place them in a sealed container and freeze. Berries can be stored in the refrigerator for 5 days in an airtight container.

High Grove is open every day, except Christmas Day and New Years Day, between approximately mid-December and approximately late January. Each variety of fruit has its own unique season, so you are advised check availability of our fruit by checking our daily posts on Facebook. Alternatively, you could ring to ensure the berries that you want are available on the day. When visiting High Grove it is advised to 'slip, slop and slap' and wear protective clothing and footwear.

Our delicious berries are cultivated using organic fertilisers and are grown on trellises for ease of picking. You are welcome to bring your own containers or you can purchase them on site. For those who can’t resist eating while picking, purchase a testing pass and you are welcome to help yourself!

Where to Start?

Bring your own container to pick into or buy buckets on site. Small, medium and large buckets are available to purchase on arrival and all come with a lid.

Once you purchase a bucket it's yours to keep. Sorry but we cannot offer refunds on purchased buckets.

*Please note that we do not have EFTPOS facilities

High Grove is a certified member of Freshcare Limited, an on-farm food safety program for fresh produce.
