@Lenswood Pick Your Own Orchard

Adelaide Hills for Kids, Discover

PYO Apples at @Lenswood isn’t just pick and run type of thing – it really is a fun full day out you can have with the whole family.

We popped up over the weekend and spent hours there enjoying the beautiful blue sky Adelaide Hills day picking apples, checking out the farm machinery, playing outdoor games, learning about the different apple varieties available and enjoying our picnic in the apple row paired with with fresher than fresh home squeezed apple juice and coffee from the onsite coffee van Hatch Coffee Co. (onsite most weekends)

And OH. MY. GOD the apples. If you’ve never crunched into an apple straight off the tree – it’s worth a trip just for that. Doesn’t your mouth just water looking at these photos!

Lenswood is around 40 minutes drive from Adelaide. Not far from other Adelaide Hills towns like Hahndorf and Woodside. Set on 23 beautiful acres @Lenswood is a 6th generation farm purchased recently by Emily and Chris Shipway and they have done a brilliant job turning it into a truly family friendly experience. Parking is easy, there are plenty of flat sections of orchard for prams and wheelchairs, there’s onsite facilities and there’s coffee! We loved the very “insta worthy” apple row bowling and they’ve even got a kids scavenger hunt available to print off before you go.

You’re more than welcome to bring a picnic or you can grab a toastie, croissant or cookie from the coffee van on the weekends.

PYO Apples available from early March to May and hopefully cherries to come later in the year.
