Our first fruit of the year is strawberries which we aim to be ready at the start of June. We grow Elsantas using a table-top system in polytunnels. This makes it easier for the public as there is no bending down and come rain or shine you can still pick in the dry. We aim to stagger our crop from June to August so you can pick throughout the hotter months.
Strawberries were first grown on the farm in the 1960s when Mr Felix Clive became a pioneer of PYO. Since then we have gone from the traditional ground-grown plants with straw to the more modern table-top and state of the art irrigation system. We pick our fruit for the farm shop and can usually accommodate bulk orders for special events.
