A working hydroponic strawberry farm on the outskirts of Blenheim. We produce 40 tonnes of spray-free strawberries from August to the end of January. Pick your own strawberries under cover with a nice cooling mist on hot days, real fruit ice-creams and we sell products made from our luscious fruit. A petanque court for entertainment and relaxing picnic environment. Join us on the Local Loop trail of Things to Do around Blenheim. Open every day between 10am and 5pm except Sunday morning when we are at the Farmers Market Maxwell and Alabama streets. Ice creams and strawberry products at the shop in season. Closed from February 11th to September 1st. For year-round technical and group visits please request.

Been buying these strawberries for several years and they are the best. However, they have become quite pricey and don't buy them as often. Very disappointing to see the giant price rise over the Christmas / New Year period. Understand the reason for price increase but alt almost double ist a bit over the top. So my order was Half...

We made brief stop to get some premium strawberries and they are the best tasting ones I ever had. I regret we did not get more.

Strawberries were nice, but so much$$$. Also, the woman in charge was a bit cold & made you feel like your business was not welcomed

We spent a glorious hour picking our own strawberries at a very fortuitous time of the year where they allow this (end of the season). Our little boy had a wonderful time helping us and they are so yummy. Even if you can't pick your own it is highly recommended to visit and buy their strawberries, jams, balsamic vinegar

I love my ice cream and I've stopped off at a few ice cream farms on my NZ travels but Mary's was by far the tastiest. She's great a chat as well but my god, she deserved that award. Keep it up Mary, hope ye get the rain you were hoping for as well!

We totally agree that Mary deserves the award for the Business Woman of the Year 2011 and maybe also for the year 2012 ! The best strawberries in NZ! Her ice-cream was delicious too and the tour was excellent! Thank you Mary for educating us today!

We visited on a sunday so missed the farm and caught up with the strawbs at the local farmers market, which also was truely awesome. We demolished a large punnet greedily in a very short time. I will dream about these little gems for years to come. I may even visit blenheim again just to go the farm.
