How to Pick Your Own

  • Start at the Hillwood Farmgate Cafe
  • Collect a punnet (that's what we put berries into) from the counter and pay for your entry into the farm
  • Collect as many strawberries that fit your punnet with the lid on. If you want to pick berries other than strawberries, collect another punnet from the cafe for those.
  • We appreciate you keeping it fair. Part of the experience of berry picking is to have a berry straight off the vine, but please don't eat multiple berries or fill other containers otherwise you will forfeit anything you've collected.
  • Your filled punnet is yours to keep and when you are finished, come back to the cafe for a treat and a browse around our farm fresh produce.


  • Entry is free to the cafe and for anyone wanting to watch the picking
  • Picking is $10 per kilo of strawberries
  • Have fun finding the biggest, ugliest or the rare double-header!

farm cafe

Picking juicy berries deserves a treat! Reward yourself with a stop at the cafe and have some delicious scones with berry jam (of course!), a tea or coffee or any of our other tasty treats. Non-pickers are just as welcome, so put your feet up and enjoy your surroundings.

  • Raspberries (due mid December)
