premium QUALITY blueberries
Off-grid blueberry farmers and locavore chefs with a strawbale farmstay & cantina. We host private functions & special events. Est 2001.
Blue Tongue Berries is a small scale 20 acre off-grid blueberry farm located in Seymour Victoria. We farm low yield premium quality organic blueberries and sell exclusively to the local community from our farmgate store. The entire property is completely off-grid and runs a on combination of solar and wind generated power. Our main farm building is constructed using rendered straw and has a highly efficient passive solar design. The farm is located on the highest hill in Seymour and overlooks the splendour of the Tallarook ranges and Goulburn valley.
The Cantina is our commercial kitchen, licensed bar, dining room and farmgate store. The Cantina combined with the Hacienda's function room and courtyard provide great flexibility for functions, workshops and events.
The Cantina is also used to host private functions. We specialise in hosting intimate gatherings that are suited to small groups and create custom menus based on your preference.
Each summer to celebrate blueberry season our Cantina opens its doors to the public offering a unique dining experience featuring a special set menu. Tables are limited and bookings are essential. Open Friday, Saturday & Sunday, 11am to 3pm each week from early December until we run out of blueberries.
