Strawberry Fields at Rolin Farms


What is PYO?
Strawberry season in Australia generally runs from June to October and during this season many of the local strawberry farms around Brisbane offer PYO (Pick Your Own). PYO is not only a great opportunity to get your strawberries at their freshest but gives you a hands-on farming experience and a good insight into where your food is actually coming from. Strawberry picking is the ultimate, educational family outing that the kids will absolutely love.

Where is Rolin Farms?
One of the closest PYO Strawberry Farms within easy reach of Brisbane is a small family run farm, Rolin Farms. Located in Elimbah, it is less than an hours drive from Brisbane City. Rolin Farms is open 7 days a week from 8:304:30pm. It's impossible to miss, as there is an iconic giant strawberry next to the shed. Rolin Farms also has a farm shop with a delightful selection of assortments ranging from pre-packed strawberries to jam, ice-cream, nuts and local honey.

How much does it cost?
To be honest, PYO is not overly cheap (surprisingly!) and you'll most likely buy strawberries at the supermarket for cheaper. But it's the freshness of the strawberries and the experience of picking your own that counts, right? Prices start at $10 per kg. Upon arrival, you will be given a basket with a plastic tray inside. The minimum picking quantity is 1kg.
