There is cherry cordial, cherry meringues, cherry chocolate, cherry cider, cherry honey, cherry jam, cherry ice cream, cherry beer and - oh YES - cherries at Cherryhill Orchard. Mamma has fallen back in love with these little red treats after visiting the massive orchard out in Wandin. Cherryhill has a number of orchards over Victoria but it is at this eastie spot that U-pick is at its BEST! The cherry experts will show you - or drive by bus - to the best spots for picking on the day and are on hand to show you which are perfect for picking. The little ones will find picking the fruit easy to do, but you will need to show them how to spit out the pips and then remind them constantly as well! Finding the best, darkest red cherries is super fun plus they make the best earrings. Purchasing a ticket gets you whole day entry to the property with all you can eat cherries from the trees, plus you get to fill a bucket which you pay for at the end of the day. You can pack a picnic and sit on the lawns overlooking the fields while you cool off with an ice-cream or a cherry cider! Just maybe remember to not dress the kids in white!
Mamma's special mention: It can be beautiful walking through the trees on you picking adventure but be sure to pack the sunscreen and the hats for this time of year. We also were able to bring the pram - the team will show you a pram friendly patch you work your way through!
