We are very fortunate to live in a region that produces heavenly berries of all shapes and sizes. If, like us, you eat seasonally you will be a bit giddy with excitement about the next few months of berry season or ‘berrypalooza’.
Most of our produce stalls have a diverse offering of veggies, fruit, nuts and berries so you can be sure to find exactly what you’re looking for. Some more info on our berry stalls:
Margaret and Justin Fleming from Fleming Berries in Korumburra have a gorgeous farm absolutely full of fruit at this time of year. You can buy fresh and frozen berries from them or you can try their berries in their amazing fruit sorbets, icy poles or frozen yoghurt. They also have waffles with berry compote and other treats throughout the year. For more info www.facebook.com/flemingberries
Sunny Creek Organic Berry Farm. Located a couple of minutes out of Trafalgar, this farm offers a pick your own service including our favourite ‘gobble pass’ which means you can both pick and gobble as you go. Their range is incredible but call first to make sure the pick your own is running as they do rest the farm after heavy use. Phil has a gorgeous range of organic berries at the market – fresh and frozen plus a huge range of jams that echo the diversity of their crops. For more info www.sunnycreekorganic.com.au
Lynda and Lloyd from Mannagum Farm are one half of the Baw Baw Organics duo. Their farm in Buln Buln produces a fabulous range of produce including strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and more. Also all organic. For more info www.facebook.com/BawBawOrganics or www.bawbawfoodhub.org.au
Say hi to Drew from Narracan Road Produce in Erica who comes seasonally to market with lovely berries from Erica and cherries from his other farm in Seville. Cherries started in November and were absolutely delicious and last longer because they are freshly picked.
So plan your Christmas feast around berries and make sure you get a few packets in the freezer to last you over the berry-free months.
