The time is ripe for strawberry picking with some of the juiciest, sweetest strawberries found just forty minutes from Brisbane at the Chambers Flat Strawberry Farm.
Located in Logan at Chambers Flat, the farm provides strawberries by the box or pick your own. Open seven days a week (from June to November), kids can clamber among the strawberry plants picking the plumpest, best berries and placing them in their punnet. Once you've filled your container, take it to the farm shop where it is weighed and paid by the kilo.
Take home or enjoy your farm fresh berries in the lovely, rural setting with picnic tables and small playground provided. The farm shop also sells homemade strawberry ice-cream, chocolate dipped strawberries, strawberry jams, farm fresh eggs and espresso.
*Need to know: Pick your own closes 30 minutes prior to closing time each day.
