U Pick and Orchard Tours

Our Fruit Adventure Tours take you around the orchard with an expert guide.  You’ll learn about our farming practices and discover what real fruit tastes like. Rayner’s is one of the leading u pick farms in Melbourne.

Please note our farm is different from any other fruit farm that offers U Pick – due to the large quantity of fruit varieties on our farm, you need to take a fruit tasting tour with one of our farm guides, in order to find the trees with fruit ready for picking & tasting! U Pick is therefore not available without taking the Fruit Tasting Adventure Tour.

I loved the fruit bottling. The pear was scrumptious!  The pear was hard to cut because the knife was made out of plastic! We have to wait 4 weeks to eat them! It was so much fun.
