Dates & Times for Pick Your Own
We will open again for picking in June 2024 for Mandarins, Oranges, Lemons, Limes and Cumquats. The past few years have been very difficult, particularly with the floods and then the incredible rain events through the growing season.
NEST YEAR – June 2024 to July 2024 from 10am to 3pm
Mandarins, Oranges, Lemons, Limes and Cumquats will be available.
Fords Farm will open in June 2024 but BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL – you will be unable to enter the orchard without a booking and walk-ins are not allowed due to the NSW State Government imposing restrictions on the number of people allowed on the property at any one time. Simply click on the box “Pick Your Own Mandarins” on our Home Page to choose the date and time you wish to visit. There is a booking fee of $10.00 per car and this will allow up to 6 people in your car to enter and each car must have its own booking. This $10 fee is for your car only, it is not per person.
Refunds on Bookings: All bookings will close 24 hrs before event when you will no longer be able to change or cancel your booking or receive a refund. Should Fords Farm cancel your bookings because there is no fruit left or you cancel because you are unwell we will arrange a refund of your booking fee (as long as it is 24 hrs before your booking time)
Please note we cannot guarantee the volume of fruit available for picking on any given day especially as the season progresses.
Tours – by appointment only
We will allow limited tours this year, but will be by appointment only. To book a tour you must either email or phone us for a suitable date.
