It's our first time picking apples right from the tree! Both kids and adults were overjoyed! The apples were really juicy! Not to forget, the staff there were also very friendly!

We picked yellow and white peaches and nectaries. They were just beautiful. We have never tasted such sweet peaches and nectarines. Staff were friendly and provided us clear instructions on how to pick. We will definitely come back.

Located very close to Bacchus Marsh town. Free parking on site. Few varieties of apples were available on those days including red delicious, golden delicious and Jonathan. Price was cheap. A wonderful experience. Friendly people.

Stop by when traveling back Melbourne from ballarat. This is a good apple picking experience. You pay those that you pluck. A pail was given to you and you are allowed to pluck as many as you want. However, we saw some dishonest guests plucking...More

Bit of everything, but in this time of the year we found only apples to pick up. There are nectarines, apricots, and cherries trees on the farm. Owner are very friendly and helpful. No problem with parking it's plenty of them.
