Colin Smith, of Trevallyn, was at the Tamar Valley farm picking strawberries, raspberries, loganberries, blackberries, redcurrants and blackcurrants with his wife and three daughters.

Mr Smith said they visited Hillwood every summer, picking fruit to make into jam.

”It gets the kids outside and they get to enjoy nature and see how different berries grow, what a real farm looks like and they also enjoy the rural lifestyle,” he said.

”They see the food from when it is growing to when they eat it and that’s a good process for them to see.”

Owner Stacey File said the farm had been popular during summer, with many returning to meet the newest additions.

”We now have two pet pigs named Truffles and Stubbies that everyone can go out and feed and play with, we have two new pet sheep, a variety of ducks and of course we have got a picnic area by the dam,” she said.
