Ripe ‘N’ Ready Cherry Farm
Cherries Pick Your Own & Farm Gate Seasonal Fruit at Red Hill.
The Ripe ‘n’ Ready Cherry Farm at 52 Arkwells Lane in Red Hill, is owned and operated by two generations of the Easy family, who planted the orchard back in 1947 on 24 acres of lush, Red Hill countryside. These days, Eric and Simon Easy’s farm is one of the Peninsula’s biggest and best cherry producers. The love that has gone into cultivating the orchard is evident in the lush quality of the fruit. With over 70 varieties of cherries, there is a delicious variety for every jam, ice cream, cake, sauce or fruit bowl.
Fruit season runs Mid- November to Mid-January dependent on the year. Check the Fruit-O-Metre to see when is good to come and when’s great to come! There are also waves of ‘ideal’ cropping points so if you want to make the most of your visit sign-up to the ‘Cherry Alert’ and get a head start.
Within our Cherry Farm, we have a large trout fishing dam full of Rainbow Trout. With fish up to a kilo, you’ll be in for a treat. Bring the family and friends and make a day of it and enjoy the other farm gate outlets in the area whilst you’re here.
