One of the best ways to experience the mountains is to visit the Bilpin Fruit Bowl. You can stop by just to try their freshly baked pies, made from their own farm’s produce OR you can walk down to their back fields and pick your own fruit. For a small fee you are let into their orchard, full or many types of apples, and if you go in the right season, you may even get the chance to pick some strawberries! As the farmers will tell you, the freshly picked fruit will last for weeks without going bad and will be the finest you’ve tasted, no doubt. There are many outlets that sell fresh pies and local cider, but the Fruit Bowl remains the only location where you can try your hand fruit picking.
