The Baronio family has been growing fresh Australian produce in the Stanthorpe district since the 1930s and at Applethorpe since the mid-1970s. Over the years, they’ve developed many different types of fruits and vegetables in various locations. But today, it’s all about fresh Aussie strawberries and apples grown on their home farm in one of the prettiest and highest altitude spots in Queensland. Their location is the secret ingredient to producing some of Australia’s best fruit – fertile soils, cool nights, warm days, and plenty of glorious Queensland sunshine combine to ripen and sweeten their fruits to perfection.
During harvesting, their farm is open one weekend a month for people to come along and pick their juicy strawberries or crisp and crunchy apples. But, of course, which fruit is available depends on the time of year.
Bring the whole family to enjoy a fun day in the country, including your pet on a leash.
Bookings are essential to ensure that Eastern Colour has plenty of fruit for everyone to pick, so please see the website for further details and the next picking events.
