Pick Your Own

PICK YOUR OWN SEASON 2022

We are excited to announce that our PYO Fields and Seasonal Shop are now open for the season.

We will be open daily throughout the summer (10am – 5pm) with last admission to the fields at 4pm. Initially, we will have strawberries available to pick along with ready picked fruit and other local goodies on sale in our shop.  All the other fruits will follow shortly afterwards; the gooseberries and raspberries are typically ready in June followed by the red and blackcurrants and latterly the blackberries in July.

Additionally, our popular Snack Shack will be open every day serving a range of drinks, snacks and ice creams with a lovely outdoor seating area where you can relax and enjoy the views of the beautiful Staffordshire countryside!

Our onsite Strawberry Cabin Tea Room and Restaurant (under new management) will also be open every day so if you fancy something more substantial or to sit inside or outside and relax prior to or after picking, there will be lots of delicious options on the menu.

We now have an extended play area for children to enjoy including Bouncy Castles (weather permitting), a Sand Pit, Balance Beam, a Straw Pyramid and a brand-new Discovery Climbing Frame.  There is plenty to keep the children happy and unlimited use of these is included in the admission price.  So, rest assured, there will be plenty of time for play either prior to or after picking! 

Great outdoor family fun!

Strawberries

We grow a variety called Malling Centenary, one of the most widely grown varieties in the UK. A combination of superb fruit quality, a delicious sweet flavour with a bright glossy skin means they really are one of the nicest tasting strawberries.

Raspberries

We grow both summer and autumn fruiting raspberries. The varieties we grow in the PYO are Glen Ample, Glen Carron, Tulameen and Cascade Delight, all of which have subtle differences in flavour and they all freeze beautifully.

Blackberries

Our commercially grown blackberries are much larger than their wild hedgerow counterparts. We grow two varieties called Black Tay and Loch Ness and as well as making wonderful desserts, they freeze well for use during the winter months.

Blackcurrants

Blackcurrants have a slightly tart and sharp flavour and are usually eaten cooked in jams, puddings and preserves.  We grow two different varieties called Ebony and Ben Lomond and both of these freeze well. NOW FINISHED FOR 2021.

 

Blueberries

We sell ready picked Blueberries (they are not available for PYO). They are a great source of Vitamin C and Vitamin K and contain high levels of antioxidants – they really are a ‘super fruit’ in terms of health benefits. There are lots of recipes for blueberries and they are particularly delicious in a smoothie. The variety that we grow is called Liberty and they freeze extremely well.

Gooseberries

Gooseberries have seen a resurgence in popularity in recent years, although they are not widely available in the shops so you need to come early to avoid disappointment. We grow two varieties called Invicta and Captivator and they do freeze well too for hearty winter puddings.
NOW FINISHED FOR 2021.

 

Redcurrants

In addition to their use in jams, puddings and preserves, redcurrants are also a great garnish to accompany meats and work particularly well with lamb. We grow a variety called Jonkheer van Tets.
