‘Hundreds of people flock to the farm each week to drink strawberry cider, eat strawberry inspired desserts and ice-creams, and just enjoy relaxing in a beautiful setting. Cooloola Berries is en route to Rainbow Beach and Tin Can Bay so it’s a great place to stop in for a bite if your heading out for a day trip that way.’
Jason’s passion for strawberry farming spans three generations. Taste sunshine all year round at Cooloola Berries. Share the romance of picking sweet, ripe, delicious fruit. Come for the drive and stay for the day, don’t miss the famous Paella in the Paddock, every Sunday 1pm – 4pm. Despite the economic challenges of strawberry farming Jason was undaunted. The family began building on the earlier success of selling premium strawberry varieties at local farmers markets. In 2007, Jason purchased a 10 acre rose farm in Wolvi. His wife Kim, supported the development of the family business. The farming spirit underpins their success, with the family directly involved in planting, harvesting and selling farm produce. Jason’s passion for growing the best produce is stronger than ever. One of the greatest achievements has been opening the gates of the family farm, welcoming visitors to pick strawberries fresh from the field and offering a taste of the region on the ‘Snail of Approval Slow Food’ locally inspired menu.
Cooloola Berries has been nominated for the National Delicious produce award by Christine Manfield (2018) and awarded State Delicious produce winners for 2018 & 2016.
Cooloola Berries produces over 80,000 strawberries of up to 10 varieties each year.
Jason and Kim work with local producers to coordinate the Cooloola Farm Trail (supported by Tourism Noosa & Tourism Gympie) and founded the implementation of the Snail of Approval by Slow Food Noosa working group to create a food circle – producers, restaurants/ shops & locals who value our food community.
Cooloola Berries is open daily 8am – 5pm all year round.
