More about Clyde River Berry Farm
Nestled on the banks of the South Coast’s ‘wild and scenic’ Clyde River, lies the Clyde River Berry Farm open for ‘Pick Your Own’ berries on December and January each year.
The Berry Farm provides blueberries for pick-your-own throughout December and January and local farmers markets from November until Christmas. Other berries are grown solely for pick-your-own and are subject to seasonal variation.
Surrounded by a pristine environment, the Clyde River Berry Farm invites you to take a forest drive into the hinterland and enjoy the ‘hands-on’ experience of picking your own berries.
Our Farm Policy
The Clyde Valley’s microclimate was chosen as being highly suited to blueberries in particular. Our policy has always been to impact as little as possible on the ecosystem and to cohabit with the wildlife. The farm’s geographic isolation means that we produce in a healthy, dynamic and biodiverse environment, where the menagerie of birds and insects can work in our favour by keeping populations in balance. We have utilised as many sustainable techniques of production as possible and have a tolerant approach to insect dynamics. We use biological controls when necessary. In these ways, we have tried to maintain the integrity of the area whilst producing food commercially.
