Pick your own blueberries, strawberries, logan berries and raspberries or place an order for berry treats with afternoon tea at local berry farms Beechy Berries, Gentle Annie Berry Gardens and Pennyroyal Raspberry Farm B&B.
Watch local cheesemakers work magic with curds and whey at Apostle Whey Cheeses, treat your sweet-tooth to hand-crafted chocolates at GORGE Chocolates, and take home locally roasted coffee beans from Kazbah.
