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


Perfection is the only word to describe our stay!  So peaceful, quiet and healing surrounded by nature, birdsong.  The bleating of the sheep and the occasional “hello” from  Edith the donkey.  Crisp and dewy mornings to be seen as we snuggled  in our bed, the electric blanket as real bonus.  The welcoming smell of freshly baked bread on arrival and Floyd checking in each morning on his rounds- what more could you ask for.  We will be back!
