Pick-Your-Own Strawberries and Gooseberries!

Our Strawberries and Gooseberries are now coming along well and we have opened up our main field for strawberry picking (Symphony and Florence varieties). Our new Gooseberry bushes in Tipper field are now cropping well and all looks set for a great PYO season!

This year our Broad Beans are late due to the cold winter but we are hoping to start picking mid-July. We hope to start Raspberry and Blueberry picking in July
