DON’T STOP TIL YOU GET TO THE TOP! We are at the top of the hill. drive up past the big dam and more orchards then it’s Stella Creek on the right hand side. There are signs along the road as well as the ‘Stella Creek’ black and cream sign at the entrance.

 

What to do when you come to Stella Creek for PYO:

  • You will be greeted in the shed, given your buckets with a plastic liner and shown to the section of the orchard where the ripe cherries are.
  • In the orchard you will be met by a guide who will show you how to pick the perfect cherry and protect the trees from any damage. You may have already watched the “training” video, or picked here previously, but it always helps to refresh and see the real action!
  • You are then free to pick all the ripe cherries you wish to take home. Remember that WHAT YOU PICK YOU MUST PAY FOR, so do not pick more than you need!

 

Things you need to know to PYO Cherries at Stella Creek:

  • The best time to pick? Whatever suits you but early in the day there are usually fewer people and you have the ‘pick’ of the fruit (as more people pick, the closest ripe fruit is picked).
  • The entrance fee is $5 for adults and $2 for children under 12.
  • WHAT YOU PICK, YOU PAY FOR and you take home! Do remember to only pick the quantity of cherries that you need! You are not picking for us!
  • Picnic: During harvest it’s wonderful to see so many happy people here at Stella Creek. There are picnic spots for family gatherings & fun.
  • The weekend sausage sizzle and the icecream too are always a great hit! The wonderful Bruno at Hahndorf makes our to die for icecream.  If you are ever in Hahndorf, make sure you stop in at Bruno’s shop – “Evercream” the one with the icecream wagon out the front! His special cherry icecream is truly yummy.
  • Always make sure you check availability before setting out to drive up here – we can be picked out of ripe fruit! As you know the weather plays a huge part so we will always update during the week – on our website & Facebook too.
  • We look forward to welcoming you here at Stella Creek!
