Toilets available and shelter, with disabled access to the main parking and shed areas only. Please note that this is an outdoors activity and orchard areas are hilly and uneven. Bring warm clothes, solid shoes, and a raincoat if damp to ensure that you make the most of the experience. Picking is dependent on availability of fruit, although growers will do their best to keep plenty of fruit availability for picking.

The topography of each orchard will vary and may include steep slopes, uneven surfaces and other hidden dangers including rocks. All visitors are advised to exercise due care and take responsibility for their own safety when they visit an orchard.
