A family run, boutique orchard in the Yarra Valley, Rayner’s Orchard has something for the whole family this summer.
Boasting around 450 varieties of fruit yearly, Rayner’s offers visitors a range of activities including orchard tours, ‘U Picks’ and fruit bottling workshops as well as running their own Peach Cafe and plant nursery.
Led by an expert guide, Rayner’s Fruit Adventure Tours gives guests the opportunity to learn about Rayner’s farming practices and discover what real fruit tastes like.
But for those who want a hands-on experience, Rayner’s Orchard also offers the chance for guests to pick their own fruit within their in-tour U Pick activities.
With fruit varieties alternating throughout the year, all fruit picked on tours is weighed back at the shop and charged at $5 per kilo of fruit picked – so you can pick as much or as little as you like!
Under the guidance of Rayner’s friendly staff, guests can also book in for a Fruit Bottling Workshop. Fruit is bottled using Fowlers Vacola equipment, stock preserving kits, food dehydrators and other bottling equipment which is also available in the shop for purchase.
Finally, after a day amid the orchards, visitors can stop in at the orchard’s plant nursery which features a large range of fruiting plants for sale, including dwarf, super dwarf and advanced trees.
But if it’s a bite to eat guests are after, the charming Peach Cafe has something for everyone. Serving a large range of delicious farm-style food, all products are freshly made with local and Australian produce – with the desserts featuring delicious fruit grown fresh at Rayner’s.
Rayners Orchard also has a function room available for hire which is perfect for weddings and corporate events.
Rayner’s Orchard is located at 60 Schoolhouse Road in Woori Yallock and is open in summer from 8.30am until 5pm. For more information, phone 5964 7654 or visit www.raynersorchard.com.au.
