This is one of our favourite weekends of the year and is always a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and to meet new ones while enjoying the beautiful autumn weather.
When we harvest depends so muchon each season and the with the accurate ripeness of the fruit is the key deciding factor in locking this event in.
It’s a little bit of work, but loads of fun and we always reward our pickers with a delicious homemade brunch and well-deserved drink when the harvesting is done for the day.
If you're interested in participating in our next harvest please get in touch with the message Harvest and we will keep you posted of dates and times.
What time do you start?
We like to kick off at 6.30am, this is so that we're picking in the cool of the morning, it is also better for the grapes to be stored cool, ready for transport the next day.
What should I bring?
Nothing really, its best to wear a hat and perhaps long sleeves, we'll the provide sunscreen, insect repellent, pruning snips.
Is drinking water available?
We will provide cold bottled water, morning tea and coffee with plenty of breakfasty snacks. Once we're finished, we love to fire up the pizza oven and share a beer or wine with you.
What if I have to leave early?
No worries, you're under no obligation to stay for the whole harvest, we're grateful for any time that you can spare.
Should I bring snacks?
Mid morning we will stop for a brief morning tea or coffee with plenty of breakfasty snacks. Once we're finished, we love to fire up the pizza oven and share a beer or wine with you.
Should we let you know we're planning to attend?
Although it is not essential, we appreciate knowing who will be there and it really helps us to calculate catering requirements. Simply send us a text on 0411 629 463 or email email@example.com.
Help yourself to water, sunblock and aeroguard, usually found in the esky on back of the white Toyota ute.
Keep the pick clean, remove leaves etc as you go.
Place empty water bottles on top of your full picking bucket for us to dispose of into the recycling bin.
Watch out for the red four wheel motor bike and trailor as it will be moving through the rows to collect full buckets.
Leave full buckets to the edges of the rows to allow room for the four wheel bike to pass by
