Pick a Pink Lady® Weekend 2019
Four family-owned and run apple orchards located in the heart of one of Australia’s premium apple-growing regions in the Adelaide Hills are open for visiting, exploring and fruit picking.
For one weekend only Pick a Pink Lady® Weekend provides a unique opportunity to pick some Pink Lady® apples straight from the tree, meet the growers, and discover how fruit is produced in the delightful Adelaide Hills.
Soak up the stunning autumn colours, breathe in the fresh air and orchard smells and delight in the flavours of freshly picked fruit as you wander around the orchards. You can also learn about and taste different varieties, purchase the apples you pick to take home and enjoy home-cooked apple crumble and other local produce, warm and cold. Only a 40-minute drive from Adelaide, this is a great family activity that will reconnect you with where your food is produced.
