2020 Season Now Open – Pick your own strawberries in Mount Compass on the Fleurieu Peninsula.
Harvest the Fleurieu offers delicious sweet juicy strawberries in their ‘pick your own’ patch between late October and late May each year (depending on the weather). The 2020 season will open from Saturday 17 October 2020.
Harvest the Fleurieu have made some changes to the costing of pick your own this season to make it more affordable for families; entry into the patch is now $5 per person and children aged 12 years and under will be FREE entry.
Therefore, each person over 12 years old will be $5 entry fee, plus at least one punnet, at $10 per punnet for each family or group.
It is a minimum of 1 punnet for the family or group (not per adult).
Example of a family of 3 kids:
2 Adults @$5 each = $10
3 kids under 12 = free entry
1 punnet $10
Total minimum cost for the family is $20.
You can purchase more punnets at $10 each, but you can also eat as many as you like whilst picking!
Rules for entering the patch:
- No other bags or containers allowed in the patch
- Please enter and exit via the ramp (do not enter restricted areas)
- Please walk up and down the rows
- Please don’t bring other food into the patch
- No smoking in the patch
Given the current circumstances they have had to enforce some new guidelines:
- Online bookings are now available for pick your own which they highly recommend to guarantee your spot as they suspect time slots will sell out quickly.
- There will be 3 time slots throughout the day to adhere to capacity restrictions and to allow for cleaning of the patch after each session.
- To keep this activity safe for everyone please follow their COVID safe plan and sanitise hands before entering and after exiting the patch and remain 1.5m from others.
- Another exciting change.. no more plastic punnets, their punnets are now a recyclable cardboard.
The pick your own strawberry patch is OPEN everyday 9am – 4pm.
- 9am – 11am
- 11:15am – 1:15pm
- 1:30pm – 3:30pm
