Our season has now ended, and the farm and cafe will reopen Dec 2021.
Open 10am to 4pm daily in season.
PLEASE NOTE: After 22 years we have decided to hang up our pruning tools, and have sold the farm. The new owners intend to maintain the berry farm operation along with the cafe. At this point we will no longer operate our accommodation, however we will be maintaining our ciders and gins, so more information will follow as the formalities of the sale are concluded. A sincere and hearty thanks to all our clients and now many friends for your support over the years – it’s been a helluva retirement! Mike & Katrine.
During the summer season our range of raspberries, cultivated blackberries and many other varieties are available for “pick-your-own”.
In the Ciderhouse Cafe we serve light meals, snacks and cold drinks to refuel after travelling, or after some berry-picking in the season.
Our spacious, fully appointed cottages for two are set in a secluded area of some of the last remaining Otway Foothills bush land.
Pennyroyal Raspberry Farm & Cidery is the oldest working berry farm in the south west of Victoria, within easy access to the Great Ocean Road.
During the summer berry season, we have a full range of raspberries, cultivated blackberries and many other varieties available for “pick-your-own”.
The Ciderhouse Cafe offers seasonally inspired lunches and snacks which you can complement with a glass of our award winning Crucible Ciders or Berry Gins.
Our cosy, self-contained cottage accommodation for couples is available year round.
Crucible Cider & Berry Gin
When we’re open, cider paddles are available and gin tastings are subject to how busy the cafe is and within COVID safe requirements. Once the season is finished, tastings are only by prior appointment with notice (24 hours minimum would be much appreciated).
If you’d like to buy our delicious ciders or gins, we are doing COVID CARE PACK orders by phone/email, or you can check out our friends at Little Green Corner, Bottles and Barrels and Geelong Cellar Door in Geelong. Our jams and relishes are available at the Birregurra General Store.
