Chestnut Picking at Kookootonga Nut Farm

Come and join us for a fun day of chestnut picking at Kookotonga Farm in the Blue Mountains. Kookootonga is one of the original farms to be established in the beautiful region of Mount Irvine in the Blue Mountains. All the chestnuts you pick, you can also keep! After a morning of chestnut picking, we will head off to Cathedral Reserve Camping Ground (9 km West from Kookootonga. See map here) to cook the chestnuts and have a picnic lunch. The SCNSW will provide a cast-iron pot to cook the chestnuts, but please BYO own lunch and drinks. More information about Kookootonga Farm can be viewed here.
Where: 247 Mt Irvine Road, Mt Irvine NSW 2786. See map with directions here.
When: Sunday, 27 April 2014, meet at the farm at 10:00 am.
Cost: Chestnuts and walnuts are $8.00/kilo.
Bookings are essential – please contact Daniel Frutiger before Sunday, 13 April to confirm your attendance +61 2 9680 4299 | Please note that there is limited parking on the farm, thus it would be a good idea to carpool.
