We have a few cherries and Apricots for picking when they ripen. This is expected to be Saturday November 18 when we will open God willing from 10am until sold out which is likely to be before midday. We can supply picking buckets for $2 each or you can bring your own. Cherries will be $12/kg and apricots $5/kg. Please check this web site for confirmation before coming on Nov. 18 as the weather always makes crops and their maturity time a bit unpredictable. Our main season when peaches, plums and then apples and pears will be available commences on December 26. From then until April we plan God willing to open each Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9 - 5.

From 10 am this Saturday (Oct 28) you can pick your own cherries at Pine Crest Orchard for $12/kg. We will be open until 4pm or until sold out. With a huge response following our announcement on Facebook we suggest you come in the morning. Note we will not be open on Sunday. Our Empress cherries are fully ripe and so far the rain has not caused any splitting. To avoid squashing cherries need to be picked into a bucket not a bag. We can supply plastic picking buckets for $2 each or you can bring your own.

Pine Crest Orchard is closed from April 26 until the new season starts with stone fruit in December 2017. The last of our apples and persimmons were all picked out on Anzac day which like Easter was extremely busy. We apologise for the chaos of the Easter/Anzac day period with delays that caused frustrations, delays and for some meant that they could access the orchard and pick as they had planned. Frankly we were overwhelmed with customers. We thank you for your support during the season and look forward to seeing you again in December when the first peaches and plums ripen. We will still be able to conduct our bush and orchard tours (see link at the left) on demand for the the next month. Follow us on facebook to see the latest information. John and all the team at Pine Crest
