Tasmania's cool climate gives extra flavour to its berry fruits and cherries. On our way to Port Arthur from Hobart, we stopped by and spent a couple hours at Sorell Fruit Farm which offers a wide variety of these temperate fruits.
While the 6 kids and KH were happily running around the orchard under the bright blue sky picking and tasting the fruits. The rest of the adults found a cozy corner in the Café sipping coffee and trying out their homemade scones. We had both the sweet and savoury scones. Both were good but I still prefer the sweet version served with cream and the freshly-picked berries from the orchard.
The shop also sells a wide variety of local liqueurs, jams, honeys, vinaigrettes and pickles for you to bring home.
