Picking Your Own

Pick Your Own 2019

Wednesday 24th July

The Pick Your Own will be open between 9 and 5 

We still have masses of delicious raspberries and tangy apricots. We will also have a limited amount of mid season plums available to pick.


At weekends, when the pick your own is open, it is likely that the car park will be full at various times during day so please be prepared to use the overflow carpark if necessary. It can be reached through the gate immediately opposite the entrance to the farm on Beehive Lane - look out for the signs and instructions from marshals and drive down the track. After the 90 degree right hand bend you will reach a large grass field where you can park and there is also an area you can use to picnic - avoid the queues at the Bee Shed!

Please read the following to help you plan a successful visit:

ALWAYS check on the morning of your planned visit that we are going to be open that day. Although we would like to be open every day, sometimes, because of bad weather or a shortage of ripe fruit, for instance after a very busy weekend, we may have to close for a day or two to allow more fruit to ripen.

Prospects for the next day’s picking will be updated every evening on Facebook, our website and on our recorded phone message 01245 353021 Option 3

During busy weekends the main Pick Your Own carpark may be full, and you may not be able to park there. There is additional parking on the other side of the road which involves a short drive down a farm track to a grass field and a walk back up the track and across the road to the pick your own fields. So, as you approach the farm along Beehive Lane look out for signs and/or marshals who will direct you to turn left or right depending on where there is parking space


Download our PYO calendar. (seasons vary from year to year - this is only a guide)

Please check our website or our answerphone before you travel to ensure that we are open and your chosen fruits are available. You can sign up to our email alerts at the top right of the page if viewing on a PC or, if viewing on a phone, scroll down to the bottom

Please note that whilst we want everyone to enjoy their PYO experience, we will not tolerate people (including children) helping themselves with no intention of paying for the fruit they pick. This is stealing and is the cause of the closure of many PYO farms in recent years. All picked fruit must be paid for. The fruit is yours to eat once you have paid for it.
