A great outing for the family. Didn't take long and we had two beautiful buckets of freshly picked strawberries (we picked them!). Then inside for some fantastic fresh tomatoes on toast.

Couldn't resist a few jars of relish and jam, not to mention chocolate dipping sauce for the strawberries!

Who would have thought. A cafe in a tomato farm. The Ricardo Bros have pulled together a great concept. The cafe does great food based around (but not wholly) tomatoes. Excellent soup, really good foccacia and as you would expect, great BLTs. An ideal lunch location.

The added bonus is that this cafe is within the hydroponic tomato and strawberry farm. After a good lunch you can pick up a small bucket and wander around the hydroponic strawberry trellis' and pick as many strawberries as you want to buy. Take them back to the cafe to weigh and pay. Because they are hydroponic, they are clean, very tasty and easy to pick because the trellis/feeding pipe arrangement means that adults and children will all have strawberriess at eye level to pick without bending over.

Worth a stop when travelling up the Pacific Highway, or a longer visit whilst staying nearby in Port Macquarie. We will definitely go again. A great combination of food and fun.
