Event description
Reserve a space on the field to pick your own fresh strawberries on Sunday.

About this event

To ensure you can pick strawberries whilst maintaining 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 field by booking a timed ticket:

  • You can reserve tickets for up to six people to pick once per day.
  • You need a ticket for each person attending, including children (babes in arms do not need a ticket).
  • Maximum of three 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 to pick on the strawberry fields.
  • After picking, 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 spam mail in case it's got lost), including payments and farm facilities.

All booked up? Check back the evening before; we release more tickets if we're sure there's enough fruit.

Can't see the date you want? Check here for more dates, and 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; contact us for info.
