As the Marshall family, we are very proud of ‘Ferniehurst’, our own boutique farm, in a time when more and more family farms are being swallowed up by corporate business. Dating back to the 1820s and still with original convict built sheds, it was initially a sheep farm and has been in our family for around 65 years. Some fifteen years ago we discovered that our pristine land and climate conditions were perfect for growing cherries. We are now well recognised around the markets and interstate for our wildly sweet and luscious fruit. We attend a number of local markets around Tasmania during the summer months and pride ourselves on having fresh cherries straight from the tree, picked on Thursdays and Fridays for the weekend markets. No seconds, thirds, rejects, no handling or sorting; just fresh, real fruit, straight from the tree into the pickers’ bins and to market. Due to our unique location our cherries are crisp and clean and can be eaten straight from the tree without having to be washed!
Tasmania Cherries at ‘Ferniehurst Farm’ is a small boutique family owned orchard. We post 2kg and 4.5kg Express Post boxes of fresh cherries to all states except Western Australia. For more details go to our Shop Page. This page will not open until we have started picking fruit in December.
Please note that we do not require any more pickers for this season.
