Such a fun morning picking nectarines and learning about your orchard. Amazing to see the dams full after a dry 2019. A beautiful spot for a little picnic afterwards with a chilled cider. The non-alcoholic version is super yum as well.
Such amazing staff and customer service here, there is always a friendly face to greet you and help you out! The produce at the Apple Shack is top quality and if you are able to go on a farm tour of any kind I highly recommend it, they are amazing! We were fortunate enough to walk through and see the beautiful blossoms on the nectarine trees and have also been for a pick your own tour. One of the best places to visit, well worth the trip!
This was such a fun day trip! We really enjoyed Jo's tour and Harry's expertise, and it was great to stock up on cider afterwards. Definitely recommend bringing a picnic basket and sticking around after picking.

When we sent a selection of our ciders to the world cider awards, judged in London we hoped we may do well but were shocked and somewhat overwhelmed to be so successful. We sent three products and won 4 awards. That’s pretty huge. To win gold medals for Darkes Howler...
