Just over two weeks into a late season at High Grove Berry Farm, owner Tony Iaria has been glad to see visitors come from all across Victoria and beyond.
Picking at the Mount Stanley Road farm is expected to extend into February and raspberries, blackberry varieties, blueberries, boysenberries and currants are going strong.

Mr Iaria said families were indulging on cherries in particular after a wet 2021.
"This year we started late but everything now is beautiful, it's working out well for us," he said.
"It's been a record year and we've been very happy."
The intermittent thunderstorms over the past week have not impacted berry quality; some cherries have a split but the vast majority of the crop has been unaffected.
Rohan and Dale Isaac of Yarrawonga visited last week for the first time with their kids Bowie, 8, and Maya, 11.
"We have friends that come every year, and when they told us they were heading over we decided to come across too," Mr Isaac said.
"It's been hot but really good - it's something for all the family to do."
Mr Isaac said it was a great day trip to get out of town ahead of returning to work.
"We had a pretty quiet Christmas and New Year - just spending it at home and with friends and family," he said.
