Well what a fabulous opening weekend we had!

It was great to see some old familiar faces back at Ballinaclash and also to meet lots of new and enthusiastic pick your owners!

With absolutely perfect cherry picking weather, all of our customers seemed very happy with their buckets full of Early Sweet cherries.

The ice cream machine got a fair workout and we were kept busy baking cherry pies!

There are still some Early Sweets left to pick and this week and the next cherry varieties, the Lewis and the Vistas, will be ripening. The Lewis are dark and sweet with a medium-length stalk and the Vistas are a large, sweet, dark-skinned and firm-fleshed cherry.

Our early peach varieties are ripening beautifully and should be ready and available in our Farm Gate Shop this week. Sorry no pick your own peaches.

The weather forecast is looking good for the coming week, so it’s a great time to pack a picnic and head to the beautiful Hilltops Region for some cherry picking.

Also perfect weather to grab yourself our latest merchandise –our new Ballinaclash cap! Already proving to be very popular with our staff & dog!!!
