We have been busy over the past few days enjoying the sunshine while grafting grapes and thinning fruit – at Ballinaclash there is no substitute for flavour and quality.

Our Farmgate Shop is all stocked up with lots of cherry goodies including gorgeous home-made cherry aprons in both adult and kid sizes, so be sure to drop in and see for yourself.

On Friday we had our first lug of cherries for 2019. And the first person to see the cherries was the happy farmer’s dad who also happens to be the original owner of Ballinaclash (Est. 1965). These little red beauties are available at our Farm Gate Shop this weekend, until sold out.

We also had the pleasure of meeting our first cherry customers – rotary exchange students from Orange, one from Germany, France, Belgium and Finland – who had never had Australian cherries before. Thanks for stopping by guys, we hope you enjoyed the cherries!

The Ballinaclash Farmgate Shop, Cellar Door & Pick Your Own Orchard are open every Friday, Saturday & Sunday and 7 days a week during cherry season. Our pick your own season will commence next Saturday 9th November.

Cherry aprons & international customers!
