    Comments from a visitor on October 24, 2011: "Hi there, I saw your website when looking for somewhere to take my 3 year old daughter strawberry picking in Perth, Western Australia. I used to love berry picking as a child and hoped my daughter and I could have some fun sharing this wonderful experience. The only farm I could find in Perth was Strawberry Fields on Wanneroo Road, so this morning we travelled over an hour to get there only to find the tearooms closed, extremely grumpy and unwelcoming service and terrible facilities. I must have been told about the 'rules' three or four times and was made to feel quite uncomfortable about being there with a child. I would NOT be recommending this farm to anyone as they clearly do not want the 'pick-your-own' business. This is a shame as there are hardly any places in Perth to go and PYO anymore. Anyway, hope this feedback helps - thanks for the website!

We will supply all the harvesting equipment you need and we have our own Italian Pieralisi olive oil press. For oil varieties of olive the cost of pressing the olives is included the the price and we will press them for you straight after they are picked so you can take home your own, fresh, new season extra virgin olive oil, (bring your own clean containers or we can supply them). For olive oil you must harvest a minimum of 50kg of fruit as our press cannot deal with anything less. As a guide, 50kg of olives should yield 9 or 10 litres of oil on average. For pickling (table) varieties of olives we will give you instructions on how to pickle and flavour your olives at home. We can also provide purpose-made pickling containers. Cost: $2.50 (Australian dollars) per kg for both pickling and oil varieties. This includes pressing (for oil varieties) and the use of our harvesting equipment, (mats, rakes, baskets, etc). The cost may change according to seasonal variations, but will be confirmed when you make a booking. Bookings are essential to guarantee the availability of fruit and also the press, as this is a working farm! Our olives groves are conveniently located around the oil press and we are a five minute drive from the restaurants and attractions of the historic town of York. Why not make a day or weekend of it?

Ball Enamel Waterbath Canner, Including Chrome-Plated Rack and 4-Piece Utensil Set

* All the tools you need for hot waterbath canning - in one comprehensive set!
* Complete with 21 1/2 qt. enameled waterbath canner
* Also includes canning rack, funnel, jar lifter, jar wrencher, bubble freer, tongs and lid lifter.

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. 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).
