Pick Your Own

We are now open for Pick Your Own

Admission Charge

This year we’re introducing an admission charge of £2 per person that is refundable against strawberries picked. Whilst this won’t have an effect on the vast majority of pickers, it should deter those who plan to abuse the trust system in place. For a complete information leaflet explaining how the admission charge works this year click here. For more explanation about why we’ve switched to an admission fee click here. 

We also accept credit card payments (except American Express).

Opening Times

We are now open 7 days a week including bank holidays. Our opening hours are 10am – 6pm with the last entry into the fields at 5:30pm.

Pick Your Own

Children love to go strawberry picking; there’s nothing more satisfying than romping round the strawberry fields on a sunny day looking for the biggest and best strawberry you can find. On top of getting them some fresh air and helping them work towards their ‘5-A-Day’, a day-out strawberry picking serves an educational purpose: a first hand experience of how fruit gets from the plant to the plate.

We really do take a lot of care about the quality of fruit that we grow. Each year we try to introduce new varieties of strawberries, offering our discerning customers subtle differences in both colour and flavour of the berries. This also helps us to provide a continuous supply of lovely fruit throughout the season.

Furthermore, we’ve adjusted the height of our strawberry plants so you can pick without the backache of constantly bending down. We also understand that some people would prefer to skip the picking work and go straight to the reward; for that reason, we also have a large selection of ready picked fruit on sale in the shop, suitable for all tastes and requirements.

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.
