Almond Blossom Festival
In 2020, we embarked on a new journey: almond farming. Over the past three years, we've planted 1000 almond trees. Most of our trees are less than 3 years old, making this our first Almond Blossom Festival.
Although the trees are still young we are excited to welcome visitors to spend the day at our farm walking along the almond blossom trail and eating delicious food including Japanese-inspired street food.
It is hard to predict the exact timing of the blossoms especially for young trees like ours and the blossoms only stick around for about 2 weeks. The specific dates of the festival will also depend on weather conditions but the trees should reach full bloom in the middle of August ~ beginning of September. Keep an eye out for specific dates!
Almond Blossom Trail
The goal is for children to find all seven stations along the 1.5km trail and to stamp your map card with the flower icons at each station. Adults can discover the Japanese poetry and artwork at each stamp station. Kids can claim a sweet treat at the end, if they are able to present their map card with each of the seven unique stamps.
Before you begin the trail visit the bathroom as there are no facilities in the fields. Guests in wheelchairs kindly note that our facilities are wheelchair friendly however, there are no pathways in the fields.
The trail is 1.5km long and the duration of the trail should be half an hour or more, depending on how fast you walk. No fitness level required. People must be able to walk on uneven ground for +/- half an hour.
Stay hydrated. You are able to purchase a bottle of water from our Farm Stall to take with you. We suggest wearing comfortable shoes, sunscreen and a hat.
We open on Saturday and Sunday (between 09h00 -15h00) in the middle of August ~ beginning of September. Keep an eye out for specific dates!
