Every season is a great season for fresh produce in the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges.  

Every juicy peach, plump strawberry, sweet stonefruit, and luscious berry is full of country goodness - fresh air, rich soil and golden sunshine in every bite.

And while summer and autumn are times of abundance, winter and spring are still foodie heaven with seasonal fruits and vegetables that ripen in the cooler months. There are plenty of U-Pick destinations (see our U Pick trail here) and gather together the best of the season to take home with you.  Most farmgates are just one hour from Melbourne!
