Gorgeous berries to tickle everyone's fancy

Kookaberry’s Berry Farm is a family-run business, having grown gorgeous berries for 39 years to tickle anyone’s fancy.

You can stop by and purchase fresh or frozen strawberries, blackberries, boysenberries and raspberries and of course jams and vinegars from the farm gate, which is open seven days a week from October – June.

15 years ago, Tony Caltieri came up with the idea to use the not-so-marketable berries by producing gourmet handmade jams, syrups, sauces and vinegars. Tony’s wife, Frances, grows the berries and makes the jams and she does so only using the best berries.

All the products are handmade in small batches, bottled and labelled by Frances on the farm.  

“We want to give the customer a product that is 100% Australian-grown and made from local berries, that tastes just like grandma used to make,” said Frances.

“I am the producer, grower and maker of the products, making the range 95-99% Australian-grown and made.”

You can purchase Kookaberry products at the Yering Station Farmers Market, direct from the farm gate, Kuranga Native Nursery, Gateway Estate, Herbicious Delicious and Yarra Farm Fresh.
