**Pick Your Own is now open**
We have decided to reduce the number of days we open the PYO field as we have come to the end of our main crop of strawberries, so there is less fruit available.
Raspberries are now coming to an end but our smaller 60 day crop of strawberries is now ripe and ready for picking!

“Really good social distancing measures. Fabulous strawberries! Burgers from the food truck were to die for and it was a lovely trip out. A touch of normality in our upside down lives ❤️” Helen Randall – FB
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve made some changes to how we operate to ensure everyone stays safe.
This year, visitors will need to book a time slot online instead of simply turning up on the day, you can book your time slot here. This will allow us to limit numbers in the field so we can all maintain our distance. Slots will be priced at £2 per person and unlike other years this will not be deducted from your final spend.
While we appreciate this is an additional cost for families, we unfortunately need to cover the costs of measures being put in place in order to open this year.
“Highly recommended going strawberry picking here. Easy to social distance with everything going on currently. Even though today was sold out for time slots, the field always looked so empty in the hour we were there. Really good pricing as well as we got one of the large buckets and filled it 3/4 full for £8 😍” Charlotte Scarrow – FB
Other changes we’ll be implementing include:
- A separate entrance and exit to the field that bypasses the shop. The shop team will still be more than happy to see you, just pop in before or after picking!
- A limit of 8 people per party
- A limit of 60 people per hour
- Social distancing in line with current guidelines will be required at all times
All of our measures are subject to change as new government guidelines are announced.
For the moment we’ll only be releasing a few days at a time to keep an eye on fruit levels in the field.
Pick Your Own Strawberries, Raspberries and Blackberries
Picking strawberries at Over Farm is really easy as all our strawberries are on table tops, so you can do it standing up. No backbreaking bending over required!
“Wonderful day yesterday strawberry picking and a visit to the shop for some cake 🍰 we felt safe and everything was well organised . Thank you Over Farm.” Laura Alexandra – FB
Strawberries are from £6.50 per kg and raspberries and blackberries are from £9.00 per kg (depending on supply). Dogs are allowed in the PYO field but they must be on a lead and please clear up after them. No picnics are allowed in the PYO field please.
