Pick Your Own

PLEASE READ OUR NEW PROCEDURES AND RULES FOR PYO SUMMER 2020

Due to the COVID 19 pandemic restrictions and after careful consideration and planning, we are opening our PYO fields to the public BUT we have new procedures and rules to ensure both you and our staff are kept as safe as possible at all times.

You MUST book an online admission pass BEFORE you come to Manor Farm Fruits PYO and you will be asked to make contactless payment for the fruit you want to pick BEFORE you pick it. We have both strawberries and raspberries available to pick in tunnels if it’s raining.

Admission passes are £2.00 per person and can be purchased here. By purchasing admission passes you are accepting the Pick Your Own terms and conditions

ADMISSION PASSES:
Admission to Manor Farm Fruits PYO fields will ONLY be via online pre-purchased admission passes for a chosen time slot. The link to book your session is below. This will allow us to control the number of people in the PYO fields. Groups of up to 6 people from the same household/’support bubble’ will be able to enter the PYO fields to ensure social distancing is achievable. Please note that this group of up to 6 people includes all walking children, disabled visitors and carers. Toddlers and babies under 2 years old do not require an admission pass PROVIDED they enter with an adult holding a pre-purchased pass AND the toddler/baby remains strapped into a push chair throughout the session. This is limited to one under 2 per booking.
Admission is £2.00 per person which is non-refundable for any reason.
To avoid congestion in the car park and during the new admission process, do not arrive more than 10 minutes BEFORE or 10 minutes AFTER your allotted time. We reserve the right to refuse admission, including early or late arrivals.

PURCHASING FRUIT:
You will be asked on arrival at the admission kiosk to pay for the fruit you want to pick before entering the PYO fields. Please pay using a contactless card. Cash will not be accepted.
The following fruits are currently available for picking:
Strawberries
Punnet (approx. 1kg) £6
Large round tub (approx. 2kg) £12
Raspberries
Punnet (approx. 1kg) £8.50
Blackberries
Punnet (approx. 1kg) £8.50

IN THE FIELD:
Please use the hand sanitiser station before entering the PYO fields.
You will be directed by the PYO Wardens to pick fruit from a specific row and you will be asked to follow the new one-way system around the PYO fields. You must ONLY pick from the row to which you are directed.
Our PYO Wardens will be on hand to help make sure people know where to go to pick their fruit.
Please always respect the social distancing rules and stay at least 2 metres away from other pickers and our staff.

AFTER PICKING:
Your session will last 1 hour but once you have filled your containers you are free to leave the PYO fields by following the one-way system back to the car park.
Please use the hand sanitiser station before getting back into your car.
We strongly advise that no fruit is eaten until you have been able to wash it at home.
Please leave the car park as soon as you have finished picking fruit to avoid congestion in the car park.

OTHER RULES AND REGULATIONS:
Dogs – other than service dogs – are not allowed in the PYO car park or PYO fields.
NO restaurant facilities are available on-site.

Not sure what summer at Manor Farm Fruits looks like? Take a look at this video to find out. 

Strawberries

We grow several varieties of strawberries including Malling Centenary, Sonata, Flair and Malling Sunrise.

Raspberries

We grow both summer and autumn fruiting raspberries. The varieties we grow in the PYO fields are Malling Minerva, Glen Ample, Cascade Delight and Tulameen.

Blackberries

Our commercially grown blackberries are much larger than their wild hedgerow counterparts and as well as being great in puddings and desserts, they freeze beautifully so why not put some in the freezer for a ‘fruit boost’ in the winter months? We grow the varieties Karaka Black, Loch Tay and Loch Ness.

Blackcurrants

Blackcurrants are slightly tart and sharp fruits and are usually eaten cooked in jams, puddings and preserves. We grow a variety called Ebony.

Blueberries

We sell ready picked blueberries and as they a great source of Vitamin C and Vitamin K as well as containing high levels of antioxidants, they really are a ‘super fruit’ in terms of health benefits. The variety we grow here is called Liberty.

Gooseberries

Current Variety: Invicta – the most popular green gooseberry; great for cooking or eating straight from the bush. Gooseberries aren’t sold in many places, meaning our Invicta variety are always in strong demand! If you’re a fan, you’d best get picking as soon as they’re ready to avoid disappointment.

 

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.
