Nutwood Farm, 22 Danes Way, Mt Irvine

Nutwood Farm is open for Pick your own Chestnuts and Walnuts each year for six to seven consecutive weekends from mid March to late April.

This year (2019), the first weekend the farm will open is Saturday 9 March & Sunday 10 March. It will then be open every weekend through to Easter. Opening hours are from 9am to 4pm and no booking is required. But please note, it's open WEEKENDS ONLY.

For more detailed information, please see:
Nutwood Farm's website,

The farm also has a Facebook page (Nutwood Farm) and can be found at @nutwoodfarm on Instagram. Regular updates are posted on both these sites.
Nutwood advises that unfortunately there are very few walnuts this year, but plenty of chestnuts!

There's plenty of information on the website about what to bring, but basically you'll need: sensible closed walking shoes, water, sunscreen and sun protection, plus wet weather gear if it's looking wet. Please also arrive with at least half a tank of petrol (as there are no petrol stations in the vicinity) - and cash given the farm does not have credit card facilities.

About Nutwood 

Nutwood Farm covers 40 acres of land, but the trees are on a flat area spread over about six acres. They have mainly chestnut trees (up to 25 years old) and some walnut trees, all planted by the farm's manager Beverley Carruthers. Nutwood has been in the Carruthers family since the early 1970s and is now onto its third generation of nut pickers!

The farm provides free parking and has limited toilet facilities. (There are also public toilets in Mt Wilson). There are no shops or petrol stations past Bilpin - and nothing at Mt Wilson or Mt Irvine, so make sure you have plenty of petrol and everything you might need!
The farm provides buckets - plus gloves and tongs to help with picking nuts.

Nutwood Farm looks very forward to welcoming you during the 2019 nut season.
