Event description
Reserve your space on the field to pick your own strawberries, while keeping your distance from other pickers.

About this Event

This year, to ensure pickers can maintain a safe distance from each other, we're limiting the number of people on the field by offering 30-min, timed picking slots.

Reserve your space on the strawberry patch by booking a timed ticket:

  • Each person can reserve up to four spaces in one time slot per day.
  • You need a ticket for each person attending, including children (babes in arms do not need a ticket).
  • Maximum of two children per adult. [Why's this? Read our FAQ.]

Note that we may cancel tickets that do not meet these guidelines, so please take care when booking.

What happens on the day?

  • Entry is free; you pay for the fruit that you pick.
  • You have 30 mins on the strawberry fields, after which you're welcome to pick other fruit available on the day.
  • Take your fruit to weigh at the farm shop, where you can also find other local produce and goodies, such as fresh cream, ice cream, veggies, brownies, and apple juice.

More information is included in your booking confirmation email (check your junk mail), including payments and farm facilities.

All booked up, or can't see the date you want? Sign up to our email to be notified when we release more tickets.

Exceptions

The first hour every day (9-10am Mon - Sun) is reserved for pickers over 60 years old; no reservation needed. If you wish to pick with younger family members, please book a later spot.

A number of spaces have been kept available for NHS and frontline staff; email us on pyo@boxtedberries.com for info.
