pick your own fruit ???
I was wondering if there is anywhere around Adelaide that you can go to pick your own fruit, my wife loved spending an afternoon in the country in the UK, picking ( and eating ) fruit as it's somthing unheard of in China, we would not mind a drive of and hour or two.

They have yummy strawberries and such. Not sure what is ready at the moment.
Can't see a web site for them but they are mentioned on the site that Guz gave you. :)
Hi there, you pick your own strawberries from Beerenberg farm at Hahndorf and cherries at BP Cherries at Lenswood. There is also strawberry picking on the road to Cape Jervis but I don't know the name of the farm unfortunately. Good luck.
Forest Range Cherries are the best for PYO cherries - they were around before any of the others and they still have the best prices. You can check when they have stuff available on their website www.cherries.net.au. I think the owner is a pom. The season is mainly thru decemebr but check because it varies a lot from year to year.
Are you on commission or something, with your first three posts all rekindling very old threads and all containing the same text? Or perhaps you just like cherry picking!

Actually I haven't checked but there used to be a PYO berry operation between Hahndorf and Mylor - off River Road somewhere - raspberries, blackberries, gooseberries etc - organic - all very Prince Charles. After he started he was having trouble with too many customers eating the stuff as they went along - I think he may have restricted it to a closed group of customers after that - he certainly stopped advertising - so I can't be sure whether it still operates - don't go looking on spec - you'd need to ask around - aside from that I'm not aware of any PYO raspberry places here a la UK.

Mt Compass is on the way to Victor Harbor.
