Pick Your Own Figs: February – March (or as the season dictates)
UPDATE: The figs are ready and we are OPEN for the 2018 season. See opening hours below.
PLEASE NOTE: Thursday 22nd - we have closed the Fig Orchard early due to wet weather.
PLEASE NOTE: Saturday February 24th Pick Your Own Figs last entry will be at 12:30pm.
Our fig orchards comprise almost 12,000 trees of 5 main varieties: Archipal, Deanna, Spanish Desert, Brown Turkey and Black Genoa. In the 25 years that we’ve been at Glen Ewin, we have never sprayed the figs with any chemicals and employ organic management practices wherever we can.
The Fig Season is Short but Sweet, it generally commences mid-February and ends in March. You are welcome to visit our orchard pick your own.
After picking you are welcome to stay at the Fig Bar, have a cold drink and or a cheese platter. We also have a few picnic rugs that we are happy to let you use and plenty of shade under the avenues of London Plane trees, see our Facebook or Instagram pages for images and details.
