“Not a real berry farm”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

A disappointing experience. I couldn't agree more with an earlier reviewer who said it was overpriced and overrated. There are numerous pick your own berry and fruit farms in Tassie. This isn't one of them. The view is great, the jam and scones were delicious (omg the strawberry jam is to die for!), but it is extremely overpriced and the jams are the only thing they offer tastings for. And Kate was far more interested in stuffing her face with ice cream than she was serving us.

“words cannot describe this place”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Amazing.
I had to convince my husband to accompany me here as he isnt really into sweet food. But even he came away with a full and extremely contented belly.
You can taste a huge range of jams and chutneys - and then its decision time - i had crepes, my husband had the gluten free pancakes - and both were incredible.
If you plan on passing through Swansea, make sure to have a bit of room in your belly and visit this place. You wont be disappointed!!!

“Impulse shopping”
Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

Impulse shopping that I haven't regret. Probably the things I've bought from here were what made my luggage over the limit - do I regret it? Not one bit!!
The salted caramel icecream was probably the highlight for me.

“not worth stopping to visit”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

I had expected a real berry farm. What berries I saw were surrounded by an electric fence. The jam/jelly inside the store looked good but very over priced. I didn't see anyone buying anything. Even the ice cream was overpriced. The rest rooms were clean but other then that not worth the drive off the main highway.
