At Main Range Orchard, we love for you to get a taste (literally!) of life on a cherry orchard. Our pick-your-own orchard offers just that. You get to enjoy fresh cherries, straight from the tree, picked by you. It’s a fun activity, so get some friends and family together and come for a visit! You’re very welcome to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy in the orchard.
During the season pick-your-own is open every weekend from 8am to 5pm. If you would like to come during the week this can often be arranged – simply contact us.
Picking buckets are provided and hold approximately 5 kilos. You may like to bring an esky to keep your freshly picked cherries cool – cherries are very perishable and should be cooled as soon as possible after picking.
Please note – toilet facilities are available however there is no food or drink for purchase. Please be sure to bring plenty of water!
