Our final event of the year with the NATIVITY featuring  Mabel the donkey  (star of the show! ) and our new goats Mimi and  Sid was a huge success! Families squeezed into our large barn singing carols and hearing the simple story of that first Christmas. Farmer Anthony once again entertained us with his more unusual reading of the Christmas story ... Oh Yes He Did!  

We supported the charity SEND  A COW with a donation of £830 TYhat will make a huge difference to the lives of many African families

Thanks to all our customers ! Hope you enjoyed your visit and your fruit! 2016 was a good season.. It started  cool and wet so strawberies not fully ripe until the middle of June. But once arrived there was no stopping them -first Christine, then Symphony, Malwina   and the last variety is Judibelle. There were abundant crops of Gooseberries, Blackcurrants, Red curants and  Blackberries.Raspberries rweally were in abundance and easy to pick with no bending down! WE now grow them  in  a new system -  growing in pots of Compost made of re cycled coconut - its called coia  They need to be irrigated as Raspberries love lots of water and the compost should not dry out.

All our fruit is grown outside which we think  gives a better taste and is far more fun to pick than those on tables and inside plastic houses. We open 6 days a week TUES - SUNDAY 10- 5.30pm  

Some customers bring their own containers but we provide 2 sizes of punnets and also cardboard baskets  We do “ready picked” for those who want to buy local delicious fruit, and take orders if you have a special occasion or party. It’s an experience for all the family with lots to do on site as well.

Please observe the picking code  PICK  WEIGH  PAY  EAT...... then ENJOY!
