WHAT'S UNIQUE ABOUT @LENSWOOD PICK YOUR OWN.. 

We are not what you are expecting period. We're not generational farmers, and this certainly isn't the place to get 'cheap fruit, seconds or wholesale prices'. You won't just pick your fruit and leave to find something else to do... we're unique (and somewhat crazy) people who have created a unique place.

 

We're actually two nurses from the city who bought an apple orchard with no farming experience, turned it into a tourism destination and run all the farming operations and business ourselves. We've immersed ourselves with the agricultural lifestyle and we love sharing it with people.  

We have created our orchard on what we love to do as a family AND as a couple. Our orchard is a place to make new, happy memories and start new family autumn traditions. Why not grab one of our gift vouchers?

 

Most of all we are passionate about creating a place that is educational, a valuable day out, provides an experience of 'unique fun' and above all is something 'different' for families to do! 

WHAT YOU'LL FIND @LENSWOOD...

8 VARIETIES OF APPLES

All your favourites.. 

We have different types of Gala, Golden Delicious, Fuji, Red Delicious, Rosy Glow, Pink Lady's and Sundowners. They are all ready at different times throughout the season. And we have just put in some new varieties including Jonathans.

OUR CAFE

Our Farm Cafe & Shop is stocked with locally produced food - why not grab something for lunch? We also have a variety of locally produced items, gifts, toys and souvenirs. 

There is nothing better than eating an apple pie whilst strolling through an apple orchard. Grab one of our 'Aussie Apple Pies'. Think a meat pie with tomato sauce squirted on the top.. but an apple pie!

We have all the usual stuff like drinks, coffee and tea.. but our more interesting items are.. our savoury BAKERY items for lunch proudly made by our Lenswood General Store and our house made Apple Juice

 

We have also teamed up with Hokey Pokey Ice Cream from Stirling who make the most amazing ice cream from Adelaide Hills produce.

 

Not to mention, this is where you'll get your fix of local farmed themed souvenirs to remember your day in the orchard.
