Sweetcorn AVAILABLE August- September
When to pick: Our sweetcorn season starts in August and continues until the autumn, we plant three sowings so the season is long. Our PYO sweetcorn will open on the 26th August this year.
How to pick: Sweetcorn is ripe when the tufts at the top are all brown and look like they are slightly dead – this means the corn is set and will be at it’s sweetest. Avoid the green/yellow tops. Grab the whole corn and snap away from the plant and it will come of in your hand. Pick as many as you want and pay for your produce in the shop when you’re all finished.
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 vegetables in the Farm Shop fridges. 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 a variety called earlibird – like it’s name suggest this comes early in the season and is beautifully yellow. We follow this goldcrest which continues our season until September, this is slightly golden in colour. Both taste very similar and we recommend picking and eating on the same day!
