This is a great day out, especially if it’s sunny. Our kids absolutely love our family outings to pick our own fruit.
Pick your own isn’t just about strawberries though… you can buy a wide selection of fruit and veg from larger PYO farms such as raspberries, peas, beans, sweetcorn, plums so there really is something for everyone.
Due to the cooler temperatures and wet weather this Spring the fruit season is a little bit behind so make sure you check with the farms before you go to avoid disappointment.
