Senior outings in Yarra Valley don’t need to be extravagant or expensive, but they do need to have a little creativity behind them. The good news is that the area has wine, trails, art and world-class restaurants, with plenty of attractions to keep everyone busy. But sometimes it helps to plan out a few scheduled activities too. Fruit picking Yarra Valley can be just what you need to spice up the day.
Different and Fun
Most people don’t have a chance to pick their own fruit — unless you count scrutinising over melons at the market. A farm tour is a memorable excursion, and it gives seniors a chance to break out of their normal routines. While having a sense of order in our days in necessary to be productive people, there’s also a need to break out of the usual to start seeing what lays just outside the museums and brunch specials. This is a chance to be under the sun, and around the freshest and juiciest produce the season has to offer.
Pride and Joy
There’s a certain kind of pride that comes with learning (and tasting) more about the world around you. Visiting a fruit tree nursery in Yarra Valley means truly understanding how our food comes to our tables. Even if seniors have experience with being on a farm, there are always new questions to ask and fun facts to explore. People who try fruit picking Yarra Valley leave with a greater appreciation for the soil and the farmers who make it all possible.
