Ricardoes Tomatoes + Strawberries
A unique attraction with free entry, simultaneously catering to all ages: children, seniors, mums and dads, RV travellers, lovers of fresh farm food and couples – Ricardoes’ fragrant avenues of tomatoes and berries have even been the scene of surprise marriage proposals. Port’s most awarded tourist attraction is also versatile in all weathers: on rainy, cold or windy days the farm’s multiple offerings are all under cover. Strawberry picking and free guided tours in shelter of the greenhouses, still with an outdoorsy atmosphere thanks to soaring circular roofs. When the heat’s oppressive or in midwinter visitors are protected from the harsh elements in air-conditioned Cafe Red, the browsable produce/gift shop, and at the Tastings Table. Fascinating free farm tours 11am weekdays with walks and talks via towering tomato vines and lush tall walls of strawberries. No bookings: just turn up! Continuous virtual tours too. Tasty meals and snacks starring fresh-picked produce at the farmhouse cafe 9am to 3pm 7 days; BYO. Free tastings from 40 medal-winning preserves. Outstanding shop for take-home vegies, fruit and preserves; one-of-a-kind budget gifts, souvenirs. Sealed carpark; rest rooms. A warm welcome 364 days a year, farm from 8am to closing at 5pm daily.
