Flower Farm has been owned by the Deeley family since 1974, when Peter and June (grandpa and grandma Deeley) first opened their fruit picking fields to the public.
Farmer Patrick’s brother Chris (pictured below – and also a farmer!) looks after the pick your own fields, from the planting to the watering, and the nurturing of the crops.
Over the years, we’ve welcomed thousands of visitors to Flower Farm, who enjoy picking strawberries, raspberries, and now pumpkins in the fields surrounding our farm shop and tea room.
Our fruit picking seasons are:
Strawberries: June – July (waiting for crops to ripen)
Raspberries: June – August (OPEN!)
Cherries: June – July (waiting for crops to ripen)
Victoria Plums: August (opening soon)
How does the fruit picking work? When you come to the farm, simply enter the shop and inform our team that you would like to go picking, you will then be handed a punnet to place your fruit into, then return to the shop after you have been picking to pay for your produce – it’s as simple as that!
