We sincerely apologize that our farm would soon be closed on 15th March for the following
This sudden decision was mainly made because Sorell Council is undertaking the road construction
to broaden the Pawleena Rd, which is the main road right in front of Sorell Fruit Farm. At this
stage,the limited speed and the coarsed road condition would creat much more difficult access
for the coaches to our farm.
Secondly, our farm is scheduled to arrange a general netting replacing project, which is the
vital issue to ensure the production of our cherry in next season. This construction is estimated
to cover more than 70% of our orchard, which would definitely cause negative impact on customers
experience. Also, it is our top priority to minimize the safety risk for each of our customer
during the construction period.
Therefore, we decided to close our farm on this unexpected date to cooperate with both road
broaden project and our netting replacing project. We really apologize for all the inconvenience
we've create to you and your experience in Tasmania.
Our farm would reopen by the end of September, 2017. We are looking forward to having you to
experience a new Sorell Fruit Farm next season.
If you have any further questions, please contact with me with no hesitation.
