Walnut Picking Time


It’s walnut time and the annual “pick your own” season is in full swing.  From April until June every year the quiet at Fontani Fruit andNut Farm is broken by the nut harvest, when busloads of visitors arrive at the farm gate, keen to get their hands on  local produce.  Locals and visitors are welcomed in to pick their own chestnuts and walnuts. Fontanini’s 65ha also produces apples, avocados, pears, feijoas, persimmons, macadamias,  and hazelnuts.

Hear from our guests

17th June 2012

A very serene, peaceful and quiet environment.  The cottage was great and the fireplace was rustic and fun, especially lighting it!  Floyd is one hell of a dog!  Never seen such a loving and adorable old feller; my grand daughter’s most affectionate companion during our stay.  The eleven of us stayed in cottages 3 and 4.  The fishing was great.  Caught 5 trouts- released 3 as not too big .  Caught 2 refine in the river in the opening near the canoe holding area.  Only my son and I fished and catching 7 was not bad. …. despite the sheep and the shit we absolutely loved the place!!!
