PICK YOUR OWN CITRUS FRUIT AT FORD’S FARM
Ford’s Farm is a “Pick Your Own” mandarin farm nestled on the banks of the Hawkesbury River, along Singleton Road only 15 minutes from Wiseman’s Ferry. The farm is bounded by the Hawkesbury River and Marra Marra National Park. It is a peaceful place to be, away from the hustle and bustle of the City.
It has been a Pick order femaraYour Own orchard for 22 years and has developed with the help from our customers.
We charge an entry fee of $10 per car (this covers up to 6 people in your car). Each car must have its own booking with the QR code being scanned at the gate. Once you are in the farm you only pay for the fruit you pick at $3.00 per kg, cumquats $10.00 per kg. Pick as many or few as you like. Bookings are essential so if you do not have a booking you will not be allowed entry.
The NSW State Government recently introduced regulations in December 2022 for all Pick Your Own Farms limiting the number of people allowed on the property at any one time. Therefore we have had to reduce the number of bookings and many people will be denied the opportunity to come and pick fruit.
Please note we cannot guarantee the volume of fruit available for picking on any given day especially as the season progresses, so we will open more dates for picking after we have assessed what remains.
We will open again in June 2024 for picking Mandarins, Oranges, Lemons, Limes and Cumquats.
Last year was very difficult with the floods and ongoing rain events throughout our growing season. The trees are now beginning to recover but the lack of sunshine has affected some of the fruit and are smaller than usual.
