Cherry-Picking Festival returns to CherryHill Orchards
The CherryHill Orchards are once again welcoming visitors to their two stunning Yarra Valley orchards this summer, for endless moments of joy at their annual cherry-picking festival.
Cherry Hill Orchards Cherry Picking Festival
With the new addition of the Coldstream orchard, cherry lovers can experience cherry picking even earlier this season.
Guests are welcomed to the 100-acre orchard from the 14th November, to pick from thousands of sweet, ripe cherries.
For fans of the original orchard in Wandin East, cherry-picking will commence from the 26th November.
You can collect your hand-picked cherries straight into a pre-paid Grab & Go box; available in 500g, or for the true enthusiast; 1.5kg.
Admission to festival includes 2 hours of cherry picking, and you are encouraged to pick and eat as many cherries as you like!
Any cherries that you wish to take home are charged per kilogram upon departure.
If you are still peckish you are welcome to enjoy the onsite food trucks each day, or bring their own picnic and soak up the warm weather; taking in the live music and gorgeous vista of the valley.
This year, CherryHill has created a bespoke range of cherry flavoured products, to ensure guests can enjoy a little slice of summer all year long.
From CherryHill’s famous cherry ice-cream, to a great collection of preserves; Cherry Vinaigrette, Sweet Cherry Syrup, Cherry BBQ Sauce and Cherry Glaze will allow you to experiment with delicious flavours in the kitchen.
Cherry Flavoured Cocktails
For the adults, CherryHill has a line of cherry flavoured beverages to enjoy onsite or take home. The Blushing Cherry Gin and Cherry Blossom Gins are the perfect base for a summer cocktail, while the Dry Cider, Cherry Shiraz and Cherry Spritzer ensure that all taste buds are catered for.
To satisfy the sweet tooth, CherryHill has collaborated with Top Tea to create a sensational Cherry Rosella bubble tea – the perfect accompaniment for a warm and sunny day.
Cherry Hill Picnic
CherryHill is proudly taking its partnership with The Posh Palais to the next level, offering “Luxe Lounge in the Orchard” packages. Nestled in a private row of the orchard, this 3-hour picnic comes with a pre-packed gourmet picnic hamper of food and drinks.
This picture-perfect experience is the ultimate bougee day out with friends this summer. For the ultimate fine food experience, CherryHill is working with their neighbours at Rochford Wines to offer the “Cherries & Wine” package this summer.
Guests can start their afternoon with wine tasting and a gorgeous two course lunch at Rochford, followed by an afternoon picking cherries at the Coldstream orchard.
