The orchard is off highway 6, near Riponvale, Cromwell, by about one kilometre but is worth a visit. Park your car on the grass verge beside the entrance, grab yourself a basket and start picking. The cherries are everywhere. There is a minimum weight allowance but I doubt this will ever be a problem. Pay for your fruit at the small shop by the entrance. There is a shop here where you can buy fruit, rather than pick your own, and for $5 you can have a cone filled with crushed fresh fruit ice cream.

Passed by this place on our a from queenstown to tekapo. Got rainier ($15/600g) and raspberry ice cream ($5 each). Till we’ve already licked the ice cream, we found out that they accept only cash and eftpos, however we didn’t have any. We offered 20 US dollars, and the cashier refused to give us change. That was such a “whatever” moment in this overpriced setting.
About the ice cream, they blend vanilla ice cream with frozen berries, so when you eat it, it has icey chunks... not a very good texture. Also the frozen fruit are not homegrown since they don’t grow raspberries or blackberries.
About the rainier, the price is more than double of the normal ones ($7/600g), and it’s procured from other farms... tasted nothing like rainiers at their peak
In all, such a rip off. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to go unless you want to really spend unworthwhile time on pyo cherries in your precious time in New Zealand.

Nice entrance. Lots of tourists passing through. Allows to pick your own cherries. Minimum of 1kg @ $15 per adult. Kids are free. We were early in the season and the cherry variety they pointed us towards were not very good. Probably a good place later in the season.
