Gladioli

Availability: Back in 2022

Gladioli will be back in 2022

When to pick: Our gladioli fields have now closed and will be back in 2022.

How to pick: We supply secateurs for a £2 deposit in the farm shop or you can bring your own from home. Pick each individual stem from the bottom of the plant, we recommend picking just as the flowers are opening so you can see the colour. Display in clean water, changing everyday and they should last a week.

Ready picked: If picking is not for you then we have a skilled team of professionals in the fields who pick our best every single day. You can find our ready-picked flowers in the Farm Shop. If you would like to order a large volume of fruit or vegetables for an event, we’ll be happy to help. Please contact us using our contact form or call the shop on 01865 358 309.

What we grow: We grow lots of different colours of gladioli but all are the tall variety, red, yellow, green, pink, purples, dark red.

Farm shop

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.

Please help us to reduce waste

Please try wherever possible to bring your own containers and carrier bags when you visit our Farm Shop and PYO. We offer a discount on all our PYO fruit and vegetables when you bring your own container - do good and save money!

Lots of small containers for PYO are better than one large one, as soft fruit will easily bruise and squash at the bottom of a deep container.

Pop into the shop before you start picking so we can weigh your containers for you – we can then deduct these from the weight of your fruit when you come to pay at the end.

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.
