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

My husband and I went with out two boys ages 3 and 1 The kids had a ball picking strawberries, ate so many.

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

we came here as an experience for our kids but were surprised to find that we had to also pay the adult price to accompany them. That was ok, thinking we'd just get some extra strawberries. After advertising they were in season and much looking on our part, we found they were not really in season and not ripe and... More

Choose your variety and fill your container and have a great time doing it! Lovely time in the patch with our daughter. Tasted the liqueurs, wines, jams and other produce. A lovely way to waste some time. Also a cafe on site.

We were very disappointed with the fruit farm, we went as a family to pick some strawberries but we're told that we cannot pick per punnet we had to pay per person! We were allowed to take the four year old without paying but had to pay $8.50 each if we both wanted to pick. Given that we did not... More

I'm sorry to read that you were disappointed in the way we run our business and you felt you were unfairly treated. We have a great variety of visitors and that makes any business hard to manage. We have tried to make our farm fair to everyone. We are selling a fruit picking experience in the same way a zoo... More

Managed to swing by Hobart just as this place was opening up for the spring season, so the strawberries were the only thing out. But that was fine, because we got to avoid the anxiety of fitting so much fruit into the container we were given, and we also avoided the crowds that apparently swarm the place once it's in... More

Tayberries are our favourite berries so if you enjoyed the strawberries wait until you taste a tayberry. More

If you want to pick cherries be there in November and December, we picked apples and strawberries etc and had a great time. Staff were excellent and informative and lots of Tasmanian goodies to buy in the shop. Clean amenities and delicious ice creams.
