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.
