Pick Your Own Seasonal Fruit And Vegetables
Pick Your Own
Come and pick your own fruit, vegetables and flowers from our 45 acres of beautiful Oxfordshire fields. Our specialities are asparagus (April – June) and strawberries (May – October).
Picking your own asparagus in the fields and eating it for lunch a few hours later is one of life’s simplest pleasures. As is making your own jams and jellies from the fruit picked with friends or family on a sunny afternoon - and freezing the fruit leftover for a sweet taste of summer after the seasons change.
The perfect day out
Explore our 45 acres of PYO fields, and our well-stocked farm shop for a relaxed day out in the countryside.
Kick the day off with a hot cup of Coffee Mongers coffee and a freshly baked Long Crendon Manor pastry from the Tractor Shack Café. Fill your punnets with strawberries and raspberries (we encourage you to taste one or two as you go) and then head for our colourful vegetable patch to pick trayfuls of broad beans, sweetcorn, carrots and beetroot. Pop into our flower fields for a bright bunch of gladioli or sunflowers to take home, and after a blissful morning of fruit & vegetable picking, enjoy a fresh lunch of seasonal produce from our café, on our benches in the sunshine.
Finish the day in the farm shop, stocking up on freshly baked bread (delivered daily), honey from our very own bees and lots of locally-sourced treats from small suppliers whose values match our own. Pair your freshly picked fruit with lashings of rich Jersey Longley Farm double cream and Cotswold meringues. We insist!
You’ll find The Tractor Shack Café at the back of the farm shop, where you can treat yourself to an excellent Coffee Mongers coffee or cup of teapigs tea, freshly pressed fruit juices, Yarde Farm ice-creams and our famous wonky strawberry milkshakes in the summer months.
Choose a slice of homemade cake - including plenty of gluten free and vegan options - a freshly baked croissant, a mug of homemade seasonal soup or a tasty panini, a slice of quiche, a Ploughman’s lunch or a generous Rectory Farm salad created from plenty of our own fresh farm produce, plus the very best of what else we sell in the shop.
Rectory Farm Shop is open April – October, plus a bonus four weeks at Christmas. We sell all our own homegrown produce when in season - including several varieties of our own potatoes - picked and on the shelves within a few hours.
We work hard to source the best quality local products from Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and The Cotswolds. In our fridges you’ll find local meat, pies and sausage rolls from Eadles Farm in neighbouring Beckley village, award winning organic cheeses from Nettlebed Creamery, and traditional farmhouse Cotswold Butter – plus all manner of condiments and cooking sauces, baking supplies, biscuits, pantry essentials, free range eggs and milk. Our bread arrives each morning from Long Crendon Manor Bakery and Degustibus artisan bakers in Abingdon.
