Welcome to Windermere

Welcome to Windermere! Our farm is just 5 minutes north of Whanganui on the Whanganui - New Plymouth main highway. We have been growing berry fruit and produce here for over 50 years.

Our high-tech farm features a produce store and café overlooking the strawberry tunnel houses. Come out to Windermere for freshly picked berries, a range of frozen berries, or delight the children with saying hi to the Alpacas, and on the right day, pick your own fresh berries.

You will probably be tempted by the world famous berry pancakes, and can cool off with a real berry icecream.

Pick Your Own Berries!

PYO is back!

PYO Strawberries is available Saturdays and Sundays 10am-4pm.

Head through the gates on the left of the cafe to find the gazebo, where you can pay (yes, we have EFTPOS) and we'll provide you with the container, details and instructions you need to get started.
