Do you spray your strawberries?

We only use light fungicides & chemicals approved by the food standards Australia APVMA authority. We also use a specific integrated pest management system that utilise predator bugs to eat the larvae of the bad bugs that cause damage to the flower or fruit. Our fruit is routinely tested independently by food safety authorities to detect any residue, which has never been detected on our fruit. We are also proudly Freshcare, HARPS & SMETA accredited which are some of highest food safety standards required to supply major chain stores in Australia.

Unfortunately we ask that all bags be left in your car or with a family member whilst you are picking. Medical bags are exempt from this rule, just let one of our friendly staff members know before entering the patch :)

Yes, everyone who enters the patch must pay the $5 entry fee.
