We had been here some years ago before they introduced the 'pay for the punnet as your entry fee' system. It seems weird, and I can understand why people would be peeved if they only wanted a few berries for their kids. However they must have a reason for operating this way, as their intention would not be to turn... More

Just wanted to take my 2 children for a fun afternoon for them to experience picking their own berries as I have done many times as a child. However there is an entry fee to the field per person whether you pick berries or not. I have never experienced such a foolish rule. Adults $13.50. Children 7-15yrs $5 3-6yrs $3.... More

Took my mother and brother that were on holiday from overseas to experience the very different types of fruit we have here compared to back home. Paid $13.50 each person for a plastic punnet that you can fill with any of the fruits. There were different types of berries (boysenberries, tayberries, silvanberries, strawberries), as well as nectarines, apricots, red and... More

Called in with some interstate visitors. Great way to sample local grown fruits and novel way of getting people involved by picking your own. Small shop selling locally made jams and preserves also tasmanian honey. Wide range of different fruits. You can purchase light snacks and devonshre teas and the area to sit is lovely and peaceful with nice gardens... More

Paid for 2 adults to go fruit picking. Each adult was $13.50 which entitles you to a large punnet container that holds up to 1.2kg of fruit! We didn't completely fill our containers and still had 1.17kg when we weighed at home. Fruits that we picked were cherries, raspberries, strawberries and another type of berry. Berries and cherries are full... More

The day was sunny and there were quite a variety of fruits to choose from - strawberries, cherries, tayberries, blackberries, red currants, nectarines. We had a great time handpicking the berries although one of us suffered a thorn wound afterwards. The shop had small sized jam preserves which were perfect for taking back home and the staff were very friendly... More

There seem to have been some very unfair and undeserving reviews of this place recently. It's a little difficult to find (in Sorell turn toward Port Arthur and about half a km a long the way you find Pawleena Rd on the left and the farm is 700m along on the right). It's not a strawberry farm but a fruit... More

I'd read up on family-friendly things to do when we stayed in Hobart and this one looked good. We headed out there this morning and had to ask where to go at the information centre because there were no signs in Sorell to tell us where to go. We found the farm eventually, walked into the shop and were ignored... More
