Fresh, Local and Delicious!
Beechworth Berries is a small, niche grower focused on delivering fresh and local produce for the local Australian market (and any international guests who happen to find us!).
We are a consumer-focused grower, which means we do not sell our fruit to supermarkets or grocers. Instead, we deliver high quality berries to the end consumer at the same great price. Although you can find us at select local markets, the best way to experience our berries is to come visit us at our farm in Wooragee. Past our farm gate, you can pick berries yourself, learn more about the growing process, our history and experience our stunning orchards by yourself or with your family!
Since 2001, we’ve evolved our business from a self-serve cash box at the end of our driveway to a full-service shop where you can find our berries and other seasonal products built around our natural fruit.
Quality and Community
Fresh and flavorful fruit is our passion. As a small and local business, it is crucial that we continue to evolve our growing and farming practices to consistently bring the best quality fruit to our customers. We believe in sustainability and use organically based products to help protect our crops from pests. We do not use pesticides and have an IPM program for pest control.
Our relationships with the local community have been developed over years and passed down from generation-to generation. We’re an active part of our local community and hope that you can become part of it as well. Supporting local business is a core value at Beechwood Berries and we believe our customers appreciate our approach to both farming and business. Come see us to experience how our family’s dedication to farming delivers the highest quality fruit to our customers.
In the past decade the number of strawberry growers in Australia has halved whilst the production of strawberries has doubled. We believe that there is a future for small, niche market growers (such as ourselves) and hope to be able to continue to provide fresh and local produce to our area.
Grower Bob Dunnett is the son of a Warrandyte orchardist, who was the son of a fruit grower, who was the son of a fruit grower. Whilst the places, the fruits and the growing techniques have changed over the years, the fundamental tenants of growing good fruit and treating it well have not.
Over the years our family has always tried to provide the best quality fruit possible, knowing that something done well is something worth doing. With constant improvement of technologies, knowledge and growing techniques; the fruit that is produced now on a consistent basis rivals the best that our predecessors could ever produce.
