Our rider Brendan and his colleague Andrew were incredibly helpful and kind-hearted, making the experience even better. he farm
Fantastic experience. Wide variety of fruits. The fruits are as natural as they come. Very juicy and full of flavour. Reasonable take-home price. Super friendly and nice tour guides. Family-friendly environment. I will take my family there again for sure.
