As the curtain falls on another strawberry season, we look back and appreciate what mother nature has done for us.
Our season started off with a massive bang, we had never experienced such an incredible start to the season, with us being picked out way earlier than we could have imagined. Along the way we encountered the Japanese fruit fly with its nasty little worms, and very little rain to nourish the plants. Through all of this, we worked hard to ensure a good season, struggled a bit long the way, and learnt lots of lessons.
We would like to thank you, the public, for supporting us in the way you did. We know that we cannot keep all the people happy all of the time, but we give it a good go, and that is part of how we learn what works and what doesn't.
So, until next season it is then...
The tea garden will be running on Saturday and Sunday this week, and then will close until the New Year.
Picnicking will be available during the same period.
Please Note: The farm will be closed on the following dates:
- 24 December
- 25 December
- 26 December
- 31 December
- 1 January 2016
- 2 January
- 3 January
We do not allow any visitors on those days (that includes people looking to picnic), we feel that our staff deserve to be with their families as much as everyone else does, and as such we are closed.
As of 18 January 2016, The Strawberry Farm & Spa will be closed every Monday and Tuesday, with the office being manned on those days... Just trying something new...
Now it's time for us to prepare for next year and next season. We will keep you updated as to what we are busy with and the kind of progress we are making.
Have an awesome week.
