Summer fruit season 2018

Raspberries ripening in the sunshineThe raspberries are ripening well and are easy to pick at the moment. 

We’re now picking the late strawberry variety, Malwina. The strawberries have struggled with the heat this season, so be aware that this last crop may not last long.

Both the redcurrants and blackcurrants are both very easy to pick.

The red dessert gooseberries are ready but have a short season – so don’t delay!

The next crop of broad beans will be ready in mid July.

The sunflowers will be available in the farm shop towards the end of July.

Keep an eye on the fruit season timings as they can change, based on the weather. Or sign up to our email newsletter to be the first to know the crop updates.
