Blackberry Picking

There are many tales mentioning Blackberry picking at Sherbrooke. Apparently the blackberries began to overrun the Mountain in 1891 – so by 1893 Blackberry picking  had become a serious activity. There was even talk of building a Jam Factory in Bulli at one stage !

By 1901 it seemed that the Blackberries were seen as a blessing and a curse !
