Go Cherry Picking at Lennane Orchards, Adelaide!

Adelaide cherry picking season begins in early November at Lennane Orchards – Montacute. They have a great range of different cherry varieties that ripen at different times throughout the season so you can try out different types and means the season is extended – YAY!

Our kids really enjoyed trying out the different varieties and I was surprised at how different they can all taste (my fave was the smaller, very dark variety last year!). The ‘Pick Your Own’ Orchard is only 20 minutes from the CBD and 5 minutes from Athelstone. The Kids in Adelaide team have been the past few years and the whole family LOVE it!

Lennane Orchards are open for pick your own cherries nearly every day during November and December, 9-5pm. Cherries can also be purchased directly prepacked from the shed door. They also grow Lemons, Plums and Raspberries, which you are also able to buy direct when in season.

As the slope where the cherry trees grow can be quite steep there are a number of fun ‘buggies’ that provide a free ride up to the top to begin picking. We also recommend sturdy, enclosed shoes 🙂

The Lennane family message to Kids in Adelaide audience is:

“We always looks forward to inviting everyone to enjoy the harvest time here at Montacute, as it is a hive of activity and a great place to enjoy with the whole family. We have a café offering delicious homemade treats, coffee, milkshakes, freshly blended fruit ice-cream and more. There is also room to spend the day picnicking amongst the trees, so why not BYO lunch and escape to the hills. We also have a sausage sizzle on weekends too. It is also fun to take a free ride in our buggy straight to the trees, so no energy is wasted in getting straight into some serious picking.”

  • As if cherries at Christmas time weren't delicious enough as it is, imagine being able to go cherry picking at beautiful Plummers Border Valley Orchards at Forest Range. Plummers have owned the land at Forest Range for 120 years and owners Ian Plummer and son Gavin are 4th descendant growers. The property is 200 acres of apples and 10 acres of delicious cherries. Plummers have 3 cherry orchards along Plummers Rd, named after their family. Follow the Plummers Orchards signs to where they are picking on the day. Park where you pick your own beautiful large delicious cherries. This year they have a large crop, with loaded trees which makes picking easy, as you don't have to scrounge to find the cherries. The buckets fill easily. The orchards are well maintained and easily accessible for families and elderly. What a great (and delicious) day out for everyone. Entry fee is $5 per adult and $2 per child under 12. This covers the cost of the beautiful cherries you're welcome to consume while picking. The cherries cost less than last year, $7/kg.
