Ricardoes Tomatoes and Strawberries Farm - Port Macquarie
Ricardoes Tomatoes and Strawberries' farm gate grows glorious red-ripe tomatoes climbing on tall 'Jack and the Beanstalk' type vines - and sweet succulent strawberries in huge white igloo-style greenhouses.
Named Port's Best Tourist Attraction in 2010 for the second year running. Ricardoes handpicks and individually inspects more than one million tomatoes annually. Winners for the past three consecutive years of Sydney Royal Easter Show Exhibitors' 'Best Tomatoes in NSW'!
Enjoy 'pick your own strawberries' at Ricardoes - healthy fun in the invigorating countryside, but safely undercover in greenhouses in case of rain. Seniors! No bending over involved: Ricardoes' strawberries grow on vertical latticed racks, reach out and pluck them at a very comfortable shoulder height.
On-site casual Cafe Red (BYO) offers budget-priced lunches, snacks, brewed tea/barista coffee. Free tastings of Ricardoes' multi award-winning jams and preserves. Special Devonshire Tea at weekends includes free tea/barista coffee from 3pm. Great caravan parking!
