Berry picking fun at Bacchus Marsh fruit farmNovember 6, 2015
Like the Von Trapp children say in The Sound of Music, “we love berry picking!” At Naturipe Fruits, we grow only the highest-quality fruit for a unique berry picking experience in Bacchus Marsh.
Berry picking is the perfect day out for the whole family – kids will love to feel independent, and parents will enjoy soaking up the country peace and quiet. Whether you’re a local or a tourist, the hardest decision is whether to devour your pickings in the car, or wait until you get home!
At Naturipe Fruits, we grow the Albion berry variety – famous for producing stunningly red, large and symmetrical fruit with a pleasantly sweet flavour. We’ve developed our growing technique over the past decade to produce consistently high-quality fruit, perfect for a huge range of uses, including:
- decoration for cakes, cupcakes, muffins, slices and other baked goods
- preserves and jams
- home-made sauces for pancakes, pikelets and waffles
- fruit salads
- paired with cream or ice-cream for an after-dinner snack.
You can bring a container from home, or we can provide them for you on the day. We recommend the best picking technique is to carefully flick the berry off the stalk, preventing bruising.
Our friendly staff are happy to answer any berry picking questions you have. Please contact Naturipe Fruits to find out more information.
