Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in South Australia, Australia? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in South Australia, Australia,
sorted by county. Those that offer organic or sustainably grown produce are identified by the words "organic" and/or "sustainable" in Green, next to their name
(see "What does Organic mean?"). The U-pick crops they offer follow the name of the farm. To search the page for a specific crop, use Ctrl-F (or on an ipad or Mac, use their "search on this page" function)
If they have a website, the name will be in blue and underlined; click on it and it will open their website. Beware of copycat websites (such as the one that starts with "pickit" and the one that ends with ".farms"; they do not update their information, they just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly! I put dates to indicate when we last received an update from each farm,
and I make updates daily (each farm as their info changes). See the customer and farmer menus at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!
And if you know of any I missed and want to add them or correct the
information, please let me know!

How to Get Here and
for a map,
click here. We are one of the few orchards to offer
Pick-Your-Own. The trees are kept short and most of our fruit can be
picked standing on the ground. On a typical hot summer's day we are
normally one of the coolest spots in the state - in amongst the trees
it is even cooler. The view from the top of our hill is also well
worth the climb. In the immediate vicinity there is the vineyard and
cellar door of an excellent independent small winery Mt Lofty
Vineyards - they are open most weekends and public holidays.
you have any energy left after tramping up our hill there is a nice
walk available by turning right at the top of our road. This takes you
along the edge of the state forest - initially bordering grazing land
and then through natural scrub where you get views in one direction to
Marble Hill and Cherryville - in the other direction right out to the
Port River. Kangaroos can often be seen at dusk. (UPDATED: November

Home Canning Kits
- Everything you need to get started with waterbath canning
(fruits,pickles, jams, jellies, salsa, sauces and tomatoes)
- 21-1/2 qt. enamel water bath canner
- Funnel, jar lifter, lid lifter, bubble freer spatula
- Ball Blue Book
This is the same type of standard canner that my grandmother used to
make everything from applesauce to jams and jellies to tomato and
spaghetti sauce. This complete kit includes everything you need and
lasts for years: the canner, jar rack, jar grabber tongs, lid lifting
wand, a plastic funnel, labels, bubble freer, and the bible of canning,
the Ball Blue Book. It's much cheaper than buying the items separately.
You'll never need anything else except jars & lids (and the jars are
reusable)! There is also a simple kit with just the canner and rack, and a pressure canner, if you want to do vegetables (other than tomatoes).
