What's happening at the farm
FARM GATE CLOSED
March 28th 2020
Because of the swift developments happening with the COVID-19 virus we have made the difficult decision to close our farm gate early. We have to put the health and safety of our visitors and our staff first. We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause.
The season is short, usually only lasting for about 5-6 weeks during March and April When you arrive at Mount Irvine follow the signs to the Kookootonga car park entrance.
Chestnuts and walnuts are $10 per kilo for 'pick your own'. Visa and Mastercard accepted. No need to book if arriving by car.
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 constantly updated during the season so it will be the best information you can get.
Week days are much less busy than weekends.
Chestnuts tend to fall by early/mid March and finish by mid April. Walnuts start to fall in earnest by late March into April. 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 the walnuts that have fallen have already been gathered.
