Ten minutes north-west of Port Macquarie, Ricardoes has become a local institution for its award-winning, vine-ripened tomatoes, pick-your-own-strawberries experience and its tempting array of jams, sauces, relishes and tapenades. Run by the Sarks family, the farm gate is determined to reduce “food miles” by bringing customers to the produce and encourages all age ranges to get involved in picking fruit, with parents collecting berries from the top rows and children from lower down. Onsite Café Red offers breakfast from 9am and lunch until 3pm and the farm gate is open from 7am daily.
