Gateways U-pick strawberries are all grown indoors out of the cold and rain, so there’s no need to put on your gumboots and old farm clothes to pick them.
Our Strawberries are grown using minimal sprays and chemicals, we actually buy good bugs to control the bad ones, doing this helps us to maintain a healthy balanced environment.
The freshest, tastiest strawberries are the ones you pick yourself, come along and taste the difference.
The Yarra Valley is blessed with an abundance of high quality produce. Drawing on growers in our immediate area, Gateway are able the offer the best local berries, apples, stonefruit , vegetables and fresh produce (in season). The shelves of the Gateway Gourmet Farmgate store are constantly changing and evolving. Seasonal visits will present the visitor with an ever changing palette of the best the Yarra Valley has to offer.
Gateway run a small herd primarily of Angus cattle and provide their own aged beef at the farm gate. All Gateway Beef is grass-fed and free of any hormones or growth stimulants. Gateway’s free-range beef is dry aged for around 2 weeks prior to cutting, and then cryovaced which provides the opportunity for a further 4 weeks of wet aging.
The careful aging and natural diet provides Gateways’ Beef with outstanding flavour and tenderness.
In addition to our own great range of products we also support many of the local artisan producers. Our shelves are always changing with new products being continually discovered.
