Just as the Yarra Valley Strawberry season comes to an end for another year, Gateway Estates has a brand new indoor crop coming into full production for the winter. The indoor crop is kept exclusively for people wishing to experience picking there own strawberries. The Adina variety is a sweet strawberry with the first flush producing some lovely big fruit.
Entry is free into the Strawberry Patch, payment is calculated based on weight and you may pick as little or as much as you like. A 250g punnet full would cost you only $4.
You can leave your gumboots and overalls at home, there is no mud to bother you and the plants are lifted up off the ground to save you bending. Gateway’s strawberry picking is a bit like what first class seating is to air travel.
Picking strawberries is a great activity for all ages and enables you to connect with nature and appreciate what fresh food is all about.
Strawberries always taste better when you pick them yourself.
