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.



The weather is just right for gathering the fallen nuts!!! Don’t forget to check out the farm store and Truffle winery on the way to Fonty Nut Farm! Seven Day Road offers it all!!!!

Hear from our guests

For our honeymoon we had a truly relaxing week here at Clover Cottage.  We enjoyed the tranquil setting, happy donkeys and goats, cute little blue wrens, sheep etc.  Eggs from the chickens were tasty on the bread baked fresh in our cottage.  We loved the smell of the bread baking on our arrival.  Myself being a keen angler, I flicked all manner of lures in search of trout and refin.  Red or black spinners worked the best on the redfin and blades and lipless crankbaits also got me a few ferals.  After a week of casting in the mid 30s weather I finally got a couple of trout DEEP in the bottom lake.

We had a lovely time
