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

During this time plant husbandry to... More

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.

We went on a rainy day, and had a great time picking strawberries in the hot house. The owner was very chatty and friendly, and told us lots about how the operatin goes and we enven tried some yummy strawberries. They were the most delicious strawberries I have ever tasted!

How lucky we were to find this little piece of strawberry heaven during our trip!! We've done cherry pickings in Blenheim for a couple of times in the past years, this year we heard about strawberry picking from our lodge owner and found this place; Our first impression of Hedgerows Hydroponic Strawberries was tidy, clean, and quaint, and what a...
