This is a great day out, especially if it’s sunny. Our kids absolutely love our family outings to pick our own fruit.
Some farms require pre-booking, no picnics allowed, one way systems and other restrictions, so make sure you check with the farms before you go.
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 and local produce from their onsite farm shops.
