We charge an entry fee of $5.00 per car and thereafter you only pay $2.00 per kg for mandarins, limes, lemons and oranges. The price of cumquats is yet to be determined.
YOU MUST PAY FOR ALL FRUIT PICKED.
There is a small picnic area with tables and chairs along with male and female toilets. The children are welcome to feed the sheep on the property.
When you visit our “shed” you will find a variety of home made jams, chutneys, cordial and honey along with infused vinegars and oils for cooking. The honey is from our own bees which we extract ourselves and contains no additives. Most of the produce used to make our jams is grown on the farm. Expresso coffee, tea, cold drinks and freshly squeezed mandarin juice by the cup is also available.
You can purchase your favourite citrus trees from our shed, we stock all varieties that you will be trying while at the farm.
Fords Farm was established over 50 years ago with some of the original trees still producing fruit (the Emperor Mandarin). It had been a Pick Your Own orchard for over 15 years and had developed with the help of our customers.
