Harvest The Fleurieu Strawberries
Strawberries, beans and snowpeas from a family owned farm.
Brenton and Vanessa Sherry have grown strawberries for over 30 years. They are very slowly passing the gauntlet to to their three adult children: Adam, Megan and Ryan. Growing up in and around the strawberry patch, the siblings are staying true to their strawberry roots but also diversifying to ensure the future of this small family business. Quality over quantity is their family motto, and this shows through in all of their delicious produce.
Their delicious field grown strawberries are bursting with flavour. Ryan brings an assortment of quality seasonal products to the Farmers Market every week. A market favouite is the two and a half kilo boxes of second grade strawberries, perfect for eating, jam making or summer smoothies. Punnets of premium strawberries are always popular along with raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and tayberries in season.
