I’m an expat from the US and we love Canberra!
With autumn upon us, I’m wondering if there are any pick-your-own orchards in the region.
I have such fond memories of plucking apples and pears from orchard trees and would love to have my daughter experience it as well. (You collect the fruit in baskets and then are charged a set fee by weight, eg, $4/pound.)
I did a google search and since I didn’t find anything, I’m wondering if there just aren’t any such creatures in the region.
If this is the case, do you know of any orchards that are open for visiting?
I think it would fun even if we couldn’t pick our own.
On that note, if you know of any pick-your-own berry farms, I would love to put that on file for next spring/summer. It was always so much fun picking ripe, plump blueberries, strawberries, raspberries….
As an aside, here’s a website listing all the pick-your-own farms in the Northern Virginia area in the US. It’s like a national pastime! http://www.pickyourown.org/VAnorthern.htm
