What's happening at the farm

17 April 2018

Season has finished for 2018 

Thank you to all our visitors.  The season for 2018 finished on April 15th.  We will open our farm again in March 2019.

Always check this site immediately prior to your visit for any last minute updates.  Our most frequently asked question is 'when is the best time'...answer... check this site, it is always updated so it will be the best information you can get.  Week days are much less busy than weekends.  Because of their huge popularity the demand for walnuts often exceeds what our trees can supply.  Those who arrive late (especially on Sundays) often find that very few are left.

There are a few important things to consider when you visit our farm.

Chestnuts $8 per kilo, Walnuts $10 per kilo.  Cash only please.  No entrance fees

Do not climb, shake or throw objects at the trees as the risk of falls and injuries is too high and the nearest hospital is 45 minutes drive away.

You do not need to bring any equipment.  When the nuts are ready they fall to the ground and are gathered from the ground.

If you are arriving by car there is no need to make a booking, the nearest service station is Bilpin or Mt Victoria

We cannot accommodate large buses due to safety concerns.  Small buses carrying up to 15 passengers can park safely.

Be aware that walking from the parking area and around the farm may be challenging for the elderly or for those whose mobility is impaired.  There are many areas in our paddocks which are not wheelchair friendly.

No pets are allowed on the farm as we need to consider our own dogs and many customers are not comfortable with animals.

No picnics are allowed on the farm. The nearest picnic grounds are in Mount Wilson, nearest service station and cafes are Mount Victoria or Bilpin - please check our map. If you are a first time visitor to Mt Irvine it will help to visit our community web site.

It is a good idea to bring good quality gloves to protect you from chestnut burrs and other hazards.  We have gloves for sale.

Please avoid areas where farm machinery and equipment is stored or where hazard tape or rope barriers have been installed

All children must be under the constant supervision of an adult. 

The map, faqs and links pages on our site are well worth a look, many customers have told us that they have been very helpful.
