pick your own
Come and pick your own Oxfordshire fruit, vegetables and flowers from our 45 acres of colourful produce, all grown just for you.
You can enjoy Rectory Farm produce practically all year round - it simply doesn't get fresher than picking your own. Start with asparagus brunches and rhubarb tarts and crumbles in April, and then enjoy a long summer of strawberries, artichoke, broad beans, courgettes, raspberries, redcurrants, blackberries and blackcurrants.
Autumn brings a hearty crop of sweetcorn and pumpkins, and our many varieties of potatoes are available to buy all year round, from baby salad potatoes to red and white spuds perfect for baking, mashing, roasting and boiling.
The perfect day out
Explore our 45 acres of PYO fields, our well-stocked farm shop, cafe and woodland play area for a beautiful day out in the countryside.
Kick the day off with a hot cup of Coffee Mongers coffee and a freshly baked pastry from the café. Fill your punnets with strawberries and raspberries and then head for our colourful vegetable patch to pick trayfuls of broad beans, sweetcorn, artichoke and courgettes. Pop into our flower fields for a bright bunch of gladioli or sunflowers to pop in a vase when you get 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 core 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 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 and locally made Hooray's gelato in the summer months.
Choose a slice of homemade cake - including plenty of gluten free and vegan options - a freshly baked croissant, a bowl of homemade seasonal soup or a toastie, a slice of quiche, a tasty wrap or a generously filled breakfast bagel.
Rectory Farm Shop is open from mid- March to 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 tirelessly to source the best quality local products from Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and the Cotswolds. In our fridges you’ll find local poultry, lamb and beef from D'Oyley's Farm in Stadhampton; pies and sausage rolls from Eadles Farm in neighbouring Beckley village, award winning cheeses from Nettlebed Creamery, Kingcott Dairy and The Oxford Cheese Company; North Cotswolds Dairy milk, 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 and pastries arrive freshly baked each morning from the Natural Bread Company in Oxford and Degustibus artisan bakers in Abingdon.
The Rectory Farm picking season runs from April - October, starting with asparagus and finishing with pumpkins.
Our strawberries ripen up at the start of May and finish into September. Check out our PYO page to see what's in season when, and for lots of recipe ideas.
