Summer fruit season 2019

The summer fruit season has now finished. Thanks for coming to pick!

Sweetcorn is picked fresh daily for the farm shop during August.

Freshly frozen fruit is available in the farm shop all year round: strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants and redcurrants.

Unfortunately we don’t have any frozen gooseberries this year due to an unusually small crop.

August, 2019

The raspberries are still ripening gently, but strawberries and other fruits are now finished.

July 2019

It’s officially summer pudding season! The fields are full of ripe strawberries, raspberries, redcurrants, and blackcurrants – the key ingredients for this vintage summer pud.

It’s also a great time to try your hand at making jam, as the jam strawberries are now availablegrade B fruit that is priced for bulk picking, and is very ripe and full of flavour.

June 2019

The fields are now open to pick the first strawberries, gooseberries, and broad beans of this year’s season.

The strawberries have ripened well and are now easy to pick. The Elsanta, Rhumba and Centenary strawberry varieties are ready first. The Hapil variety will be ready next week (apx 10th June).

The gooseberries fattened up after the recent rains. And there’s a lovely crop of broad beans.

May 2019

It’s a gentle start as the weather’s not been particularly summery, but there’s plenty of fruit waiting to ripen over the next week.
