Everlong Orchard

Everlong Orchard at 145 Plummers Road in Forest Range is located approximately 450 metres above sea level with high average rainfall. It has a slightly cooler summer and hence perfect for picking.

Fleurieu Cherries

Fleurieu Cherries at 159 Pages Flat Road at Pages Flat has been growing cherries for 25 years. The cherries are grown under permanently enclosed netting with only natural seaweed product and organic material fertiliser. No sulphur is sprayed on the cherries.

Groups of less than ten people are recommended. If you prefer not to pick your own, premium, seconds and stemless cherries are also available for sale.

Sounds like a good day out Audrey. I would have thought that these days OH&S requirements would stop picking cherries as they would require a ladder to reach them. They sure do look nice.
