Pick Your Own

PYO – LATE SEASON UPDATE

We still have a LIMITED QUANTITY of strawberries and blackberries to pick. We plan to open the PYO on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th September from 10am – 5pm (last entry at 4pm).

There is no need to prebook your tickets and you pay for your fruit once you’ve picked it – there is no prepayment required for fruit.

As the quantities of fruit are limited, if you are coming to the farm specifically for the PYO we recommend you call ahead to check that fruit is still available. If you’re coming to the farm to visit either the Fairy Trail or Maize Maze, then you are welcome to enter the PYO whilst you are here provided there is fruit available.

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
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. 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.
