The land on which the Giamarese Farm and Orchards stand has been cultivated by a succession of European migrants since the 1860’s. The farm has been in the Giamarese family since 1941 and has seen a succession of hard working family members transform the farm into a successful and popular “pick your own” business. When you visit the farm you can choose from a seasonal selection of over 15 apple varieties, ripened to perfection in the orchards. From late May to June you can pick lovely fresh strawberries, peas and spring greens while July and September offer peaches and nectarines. Halloween pumpkins can be selected in September and October. Xmas trees are the main “crop” closer to Christmas.
