R.L. Chapman & Sons Pty Ltd (Mark and Steve Chapman) is a 4th generation fruit growing business. Our family has been growing fruit for over 100 years – surely testament to sustainable farming!
We are referred to as Chappies, and farm 50 hectares at Silvan in the beautiful Yarra Valley (in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges of Victoria), a one hour drive from the centre of Melbourne.
We have been operating our U-Pick (pick your own) business for berries since 1970 when our father Gordon introduced the u-pick concept to Australia after a visit to the USA.
A fantastic day out for the family where everyone can pitch in and pick some fruit, have a taste and better understand where those lovely fruits come from.
If you don’t want to pick, you are welcome to come to the farm and buy our freshly picked fruit Buy Fresh.
