Cuttaway Creek Berry Farm
Established in 2002, Cuttaway Creek is a thirty acre property located at Mittagong in the Southern Highlands of NSW. The primary purpose of the farm is to grow premium grade, fresh raspberries and blackberries for the restaurant trade. Over the past few years, we have supplied fresh berries to many leading restaurants including; Becasse, Bilsons, The Pier, Quay Restaurant, Fish Face, Assiette, Universal, Cafe Sydney, Eschalot, Centennial Restaurant and Neil Perry's Qantas First Class. We also sell freshly picked berries directly to the general public during the fruiting season from our farm gate. Please email or phone, to check on availability (Feb, Mar, Apr).
The cool climate of the Southern Highlands provides ideal conditions for growing berry fruit with intense flavour. We do not use any pesticides or residual herbicides. All of our weeding is done by hand. We pick our berries when they are fully ripe, to ensure the strongest natural flavour.
In addition to growing berries, we also produce a range of multi award-winning jams, sauces and vinegars. Our products are handmade on the farm using 100% Australian grown fruit. They contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
Since 2007, we have been acknowledged with 8 champion trophies, 21 gold medals, 14 silver medals and 13 bronze medals at various national and international fine food shows.
