Help us wage war on plastic waste!

Help us wage war on plastic waste, and come armed with all of the above next time you visit us. There’s a discount for all fruit picked into your own containers – just weigh and sticker your containers at the scales as you come in.⁠

We will continue to provide the plastic punnets for you to use if you forget yours  – we are simply using up the stock we have -and we now sell ready-picked strawberries in cardboard punnets in the shop.⁠

Any container will do for picking fruit into –  baskets, tubs, punnets and bowls – but be mindful that raspberries should be picked into very shallow containers to avoid squashing this soft fruit, and strawberries shouldn’t be picked into deep containers for the same reason👌

Raid your own fridge for fruit picking containers – margarine tubs are good for raspberries, and a Carte D’Or style ice cream tub is perfect for strawberries⁠

Artichokes are best picked into simple carrier bags as they can be a little spiky, and tall rhubarb carried by hand. Bring your own secateurs for artichoke and scissors for snipping our farm grown flowers.⁠

Our milk vending machine dispenses 1 litre at a time; buy a branded glass bottle from us to reuse each visit, or bring any 1 litre bottle from home if you prefer.⁠
