The best Victorian farms ripe for the picking
Get the baskets ready – here are the best places to go berry picking this summer.
As the weather warms and the days are getting longer, that craving for fresh, crisp fruit wakes from the slumber of winter.
Luckily, getting your fruity fix is easy thanks to the many working berry farms around Victoria who invite (and encourage) visitors to come pick their own loot.
For most of these fruit farms, you just pay a small entry fee, collect your bucket and trawl though the orchard picking (and eating!) delicious berries, paying for your haul at the end.
So, whether you’re looking for a road trip to the country, or something a little closer to home, we’ve rounded up the best places to visit this summer - just pack a hat, some good shoes and a smile.
Remember though, make sure you ring ahead of time and see whether you need to make a booking.
