Seasonal guide to picking your own produce

Central Coast farmers welcome you to their farms and orchards to experience the joy of picking your own produce. With each farm offering a variety of organically grown fruit, veg, Christmas trees and flowers, you can immerse yourself in the wonders of picking fresh produce straight from the very soil they've grown in. We've put together a seasonal guide so you can plan fun family outings and fill your home with locally grown delights all year round.

Plan ahead

Due to pick your own produce being highly seasonal and farmers juggling weather conditions, it is advisable to contact the venue prior to making your journey. Events can be cancelled last minute and to avoid disappointment please either phone, check their website or social channels beforehand.

Please also note, that some of these farms do not have mobile signal and therefore your patience receiving a reply maybe delayed.
