RASPBERRIES–the taste of summer direct from the Adelaide Hills.

Berry nice


With the late start to summer and the Christmas rush over the berries are now at there best. The raspberries along with their cousins, the English gooseberries,  black currants ,and  red and white currants are all ripe and dripping with flavour. All the berries  are grown using biodynamic methods in a cool spring fed valley.  We take the same care in picking our berries as we do growing them. This ensures only the best are sold. We don’t sell seconds for a couple of reasons-(1)  the way they are grown and picked and (2) we do all our own value adding.

Our berries are only available from our farm shop which means they have travelled no more than 300 metres. While we are picking, people drop in to the farm to buy berries. It is nice to stop picking for a few minutes and chat with regulars who enjoy buying directly from the producer. We receive direct feedback and the visitors take away high quality, fresh, biodynamic food.

Our farm shop is unique as it only sells our produce, fresh fruits in season  and value added products made from our own fruit by Deb - 20+ varieties of jams and preserves to choose from Plus a range of Deb’s baskets hand crafted from materials growing at Nirvana and roadside weeds.
