Bright Berry Farms was es­tab­lished in the early 1990s by Colin and Lor­raine Leita whose vivid child­hood mem­o­ries of tasty jams and syrups have helped them de­velop pro­duce you’ll love. With a 15-acre berry crop grown is a huge va­ri­ety of fruit from black­ber­ries and blue­ber­ries to ev­ery­thing in be­tween. They are sold fresh, frozen, as jam and other berry treats, in pies and as sor­bet and cor­dial. From its early days the farm has also ex­panded to in­clude five acres of cherries and three acres of mixed pro­duce in­clud­ing nuts, ap­ples and figs. For 20 years in­cor­po­rated with Bright Berry Farms has been the Mt Buf­falo Vine­yard la­bel with Colin and Lor­raine pro­duc­ing cool-cli­mate reds, some of which have been highly rated by Aus­tralian wine crit­ics. The cou­ple have used their wine mak­ing tal­ents to cre­ate a range of berry wine, flavours you’ll have to taste to be­lieve.
