  • Here is famous for apple pie and was sold out when I went there. But I bought pear and raspberry pie. It was so delicious! The combination of sweet and sour taste of fruits were very nice. I enjoyed e...  read more »
  • On a trip to the Blue Mountains we stopped for morning tea at the Fruit Bowl and enjoyed a very good coffee and cakes to break our trip. Good friendly service, clean restroom, and a good gift shop, th...  read more »
  • I stop here occasionally to pick up a drink and use the bathroom. It is a mixed bag of some food being lovely and some of it terrible. Their meat pies and variety of them is great. Coffee is just not ...  read more »
  • Don't like saying this about a small business but definitely one to avoid. We came to pick vegetables. Their Facebook post only three days ago said eggplants, zucchini, zucchini flowers, garlic shallots, green kale, purple kale, capsicum, yellow capsicum and continental parsley were available to pick. But the lady there today said that all those were picked clean yesterday because Saturday is their busiest day, all that was left were chillies and some eggplants that were mostly ruined by pests. Was the entire vegetable garden really picked clean only yesterday? Anyway, don’t bother going veggie picking on a Sunday. The farm itself is in terrible condition, totally unlike how you’d expect a public place of business to be kept. On the way in you pass an abandoned car, empty fuel drums and other old farm bits and pieces lying around. Torn bird coverings dangle from wires over the orchard. The vegetable patch looks forlorn, like somebody abandoned it and let the weeds take over. It’s no defence that this is a ‘working farm’ or that it's chemical free - there are tidy farms and there are neglected farms. Whatever the reason, the farm is not a pleasant environment to be in, and defintely not worth the drive from Sydney to visit. We picked a few pink ladies but they were expensive, especially when you add the entry fee. Sure the veggies free of chemicals, but so are a lot of readily available organic veggies. To avoid disappointment, forget veggie picking, forget the Fruit Bowl and stick to well maintained Bilpin apple picking outfits like Saliba or Shields instead.
  • Unpleasant staff in the shop. The one on the farm was ok. The picking areas were unkempt, overgrown with weeds and the vegetables/fruits were in amongst all the mess. Found some ok fruit, mostly strawberries and apples and a Zucchini. So no where near as many as they listed on their website. The apple trees at the very back of 2 rows were pick-able, the rest were half eaten by insects, or rotting on the ground. At the end we went away with maybe a kilo and a half of stuff and were charged $16. Could have gone to woolies for less. Safe to say won't be going back to this "orchard".
  • I visited with my family 2 months ago, there was no much vegetables there in the farm however apples were tasty and good. Would recommend for one visit only.
  • Unpleasant experience, unfriendly staff at fruit picking. When i called the lady told me it was $3 per bag and told me the produce included veggies etc. Ready for picking which was true only at the shop but once you pick at d farm you pay by the kilo and a lot more. There is a long list of rules to read, longer than when you go skydiving. Be prepared to be ripped off in case you missed the fine print.
  • Picking fruit should be/is fun. But... 1. This places $2.50/person for the privilege of picking fruit you will then have to pay $/Kg for. 2. This place has a huge list of things they won't let you do. 3. And threats about how they will charge you extra if you pick unripe stuff etc etc. 4. Grumpy staff who are bored and impatient. Go fruit picking, but go somewhere else!
