Fords Farm Open Day
June 1, 2019 - June 2, 2019
PICK YOUR OWN CITRUS FRUIT AT FORD’S FARM
Ford’s Farm is nestled on the banks of the Hawkesbury River, along Singleton Road only 15 minutes from Wiseman’s Ferry. The farm is bounded by the Hawkesbury River and Marra Marra National Park. It is a peaceful place to be, away from the hustle and bustle of the City.
Fords Farm is a “Pick Your Own” citrus orchard, specalising in mandarins, where the public can pick direct from the farm in June. We have several varieties of mandarins, the Satsuma (seedless), Imperial and Hickson. Other citrus available are limes, lemons, oranges and cumquats.
Opening 1st & 2nd June 2019 and every weekend including Monday Public Holiday from 10am until 4pm until all the fruit has been picked. We will re-open in late July for cumquats.
We charge an entry fee of $5.00 per car and thereafter you only pay per kg for your fruit.
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 may be available.
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 16 years and has developed with the help of our customers.

1275 Singleton Road, Laughtondale (via Wisemans Ferry), NSW 2775
Although your GPS may direct you down Laughtondale Gully Road, DO NOT COME that way as it is one car wide, dirt, windy and is unsuitable for general traffic. Please follow Old Northern Road into Wisemans Ferry and turn into Singleton Road on the right just before the township. We are the 2nd orchard along Singleton Road – follow our bright yellow signs.
