Bells Line of Road Bilpin NSW
There are many farms to visit, our favourite farm is Pine Crest Orchard. Depending on the time of year, you can pick different types of apples, plums, pears and more. There is no charge to enter the farm and you only pay for what you pick, when we went the charge was $4 a kg. They have picnic grounds to eat at but no café / restaurant facilities, there are toilets on site.
If time permits also check out Bilpin Fruit Bowl, depending on when you visit there are lots of different types of fruit and vegetables to pick. We picked strawberries, corn, Lebanese cucumbers and tomatoes. They also had kale, zucchini, lettuce, spinach and apples available to pick your own. There is a charge to pick their fruit $2.50 per person under 5 years are free. You pay per kilo for what you pick, fruit prices are listed on the board per kg. There is a café separate from pick your own with chairs, tables and toilet facilities.
Both farms are open Saturday and Sundays. Check out their Facebook pages for updated information Pine Crest Orchard Bilpin and Bilpin Fruit Bowl. Hint: Take a recycle or plastic bags to pop your freshly picked fruit in.
This is a great experience for the kids, to learn about different types of fruit and to pick their own fresh fruit.
