With over 30 years in the strawberry game Brenton and Vanessa Sherry are very slowly passing the gauntlet onto their three kids. Growing up in and around the strawberry patch, Adam, Megan and Ryan are putting everything into ensuring the future of this small family business. Quality over quantity has always been their family motto and this shows through in all of their delicious produce.
Harvest the Fleurieu at Mount Compass has their very own ‘pick your own’ patch of strawberries as well as a whole assortment of fruit and veg. The range extends from ALL the berries including strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and tayberries to everyday heros like rhubarb, green beans, snowpeas, zucchini, carrots, tomatoes, chilli, cucumber, asparagus, etc. If stone fruit is your thing, sugar plums, apricots, flat peaches, nectarines, peacharines, cheeky cherries and a whole lot more is where its at in their orchard.
Not only is Harvest the Fleurieu a hall full of delicious produce, it makes all of its own bakery products including but not limited to bread, pasties, pies, sausage rolls, fruit tarts, cakes and desserts. Vanessa and Megan are the resident coeliac team that ensure there is always a range of gluten free products that also includes three different types of bread, pastries and treats.
No waste! HTF works hard to ensure every part of the plant gets used so also produces all of their own range of jams, chutneys and crazy creations. A prime example of this is the local distillery uses HTF strawberries and blackberries to create their ‘Berry Gin’, which HTF then turn the left-over pulp into a jam for all of the Gin lovers out there.
Dependent on the season and market mix, Megan and Ryan bring a whole assortment of quality products and produce to the Willunga market. A market favourite is the approximately two and a half kilo boxes of second grade strawberries that are perfect for eating straight away, cutting up for jam/ smoothies or why not freeze them down for a delicious daiquiri 😉
