Pick Your Own

PYO

Our Pick Your Own fields are now OPEN.

ADMISSION TICKETS
All bookings must be made online again this year so we can keep everyone safe, reduce queues and ensure you have a fabulous experience here at Manor Farm Fruits. The link for booking is available below and we will release tickets a few days in advance so that we can always ensure there are plenty of berries available for you to pick.

Tickets are £2.00/person for adults and children (under 2’s are free). So after booking online, when you arrive at the farm your tickets will be scanned by one of our friendly team and at the same time you pre-pay for your fruit punnets/buckets before entering the fields. So, there is no queueing afterwards – it is a case of Pay, Pick and Enjoy!

So, you MUST book an online admission pass BEFORE you come to Manor Farm Fruits and you will be asked to pay for the fruit BEFORE you pick it!

For further information, please see our Terms and Conditions

PURCHASING FRUIT
You will be asked on arrival to pay for the fruit you want to pick before entering the PYO fields. Please pay using a contactless card.

Also, as well as PYO we will always have ready picked fruit on sale in our shop so if you don’t have time to go picking or simply don’t want to, you can still buy our delicious berries without any effort. Ready picked fruit prices are available here. You do not need to book tickets to come and buy ready picked fruit – this can be purchased at any time when the PYO shop is open.

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 our PYO Wardens will be on hand to help make sure people know where 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
Once you have filled your containers you are free to leave the PYO fields by following the one-way system to the outdoor seating area or the car park.
Please use the hand sanitiser station before getting back into your car.

OTHER RULES AND REGULATIONS
Dogs on leads are allowed in the car park and outdoor seating area. However, dogs are not allowed into the PYO fields.

We really look forward to seeing you at the farm very soon!

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.

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.

 

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.
