Bookings can be made online from the link on the home page once bookings open mid November.   Sign up to the Cherry Chatter news to know when bookings open.


We open the gates for you to pick-your-own cherries most mornings in season when cherries are ripe.  We love seeing visitors and families enjoy the orchard.

Before you visit:

  • Bookings are essential in 2023 – BOOK HERE
  • Cherries are highly seasonal – their ripening times and fruit load will vary with seasonal conditions and weather.
  • It’s best to book for an early in the morning visit as this is the ideal time to pick cherries – the fruit will last better if picked before the days’ heat sets in, and it is much more pleasant for you!
  • Remember this is a working farm –  you will need to take care walking on uneven ground, amongst trees and around drip irrigation lines.
  • Wear closed in walking shoes
  • Bring containers / eskies to take your cherries home and to keep them cool (they do not like a hot car)
  • Prepare for the weather in Mudgee – cherry picking is an outdoor activity, rain wear is recommended if rain is forecast or if it has rained overnight as trees may be wet.
  • Bring water, hat & sunscreen
  • Prams are OK in the orchard – an off-road style would be easier to push over grass and uneven ground
  • No smoking
  • We have limited toilet facilities (portaloos only)
  • You will be given a briefing on how and where to pick – for your safety and the health of our orchard please follow these instructions
  • Smile, enjoy and please be sure to treat all our staff with respect


FRESHLY PICKED SWEET CHERRIES Our farm packed cherries are on sale at the farm on picking days until sold out and delivered in our Cherry Express around north west NSW and Sydney and through fundraiser cherry drives.


Over the past few years we’ve helped schools and a drought relief group raise funds with a healthy cherry drive – contact us if you’d like to arrange this.

Our farm packed cherries are carefully sorted to remove smalls, under-ripe and odd cherries. They are not size graded – giving you the natural mix of sizes and the fun pairs and clusters of cherries.

Cherries for wholesale domestic and export markets are size graded and sorted through a packhouse in Orange – these and our farm packed cherries are available wholesale.


These pack a flavour and an array of health benefits in a little sour ball!  Available pick your own – dates to be advised.  Expected closer to Christmas


A recent addition is a little apricot patch grown on Tatura trellis system. A selection of early season varieties that ripen together with our cherries.  Our apricots have been hugely popular.  Available for sale at the farm or local markets – check our socials for updates.

Please check for updates on the season before you plan to visit us as it all depends on the cherries!  

Follow us on Facebook or instagram @rothfamilyorchard or SUBSCRIBE TO OUR CHERRY CHATTER newsletter to receive an update of the season in your mailbox.  We’ll let you know when we open for pick your own and our delivery schedule.  

Our cherry orchard was planted in 2008 and 2009 in the Eurunderee region of Mudgee.  Irrigated from Pipeclay Creek it is just upstream from where Adam and Katherina Roth planted Mudgee’s first wine grapes in 1858 and grew orchard fruits and fresh vegetables, supplying the Gulgong gold rush.

PHOTOGRAPHY LOCATION – the orchard and picturesque former church are available for photography by prior arrangement.
