Sweet Taste of Cherry Season

We love the cherry season as it sends a strong signal that summer has started. The Mornington Peninsula has great farm gates where you can pick your own delicious delights or grab some already packed and ready to enjoy.

Fruit tastes so much sweeter when you get to enjoy the fruit that is tree-ripened and direct from the farm. The rich red soils of the Mornington Peninsula’s hinterland which are home to much-loved orchardists who grow these sweet and succulent, fruity treats. Here are three of our favourites cherry experts ready to say hello again.

Ripe ‘n’ Ready Cherry Farm

Wander through the dappled shade of this beautiful cherry orchard with the opportunity to pick your own fruit and enjoy farm-fresh produce. Visit the family-run sustainably managed farm with an excellent range of seasonal fruits, free-range eggs and honey.  There will be no lack of choice to fill your pantry with local delights. Since 1968, the family of Ripe ‘N’ Ready Cherry Farm have worked together to produce quality cherries and other seasonal produce. A must-see stop in Red Hill.

Red Hill Cherry Farm

Red Hill Cherry Farm is the cherry farm oldest in the state and is a must-do when visiting the Mornington Peninsula. The cherry farm is open from mid-November to mid-January. Located in a secluded valley in the centre of Red Hill, the orchard houses twenty-five varieties of cherries over their 3,500 trees. The farm offers a boutique range of cherry products for you to enjoy cherries year-round including cherry ice cream, cherry cordial, cherry jam.

Here you can buy a ready-picked package to take home - fresh and delicious. You'll also find delights such as apple juice, apple cider vinegar and freeze-dried fruits.  Mock has also recently renovated their outdoor terrace space, so you may consider stopping for a while to sample the onsite treats of the cider lounge.
