My favourite time to visit the Smithfield Berries is coming up to Xmas and Raspberry crop time. The raspberries are truly yummy and last year the season lasted well. Enjoy

As a local we buy berries many times every season. The fruit is always great quality and delicious thanks to the hard work of Marilyn and Grant. We look forward to many more kilos of delicious fruit.
