Sweetcorn is now finished for 2023! Sign up to our newsletter for early offers and crop picking dates.
When to pick: Our sweetcorn season typically begins in August and continues into the autumn. We plant three sowings which come into crop in evenly spaced waves, so you can enjoy our farm grown sweetcorn for around two glorious months every year.
How to pick: Sweetcorn is ripe when the tufts at the top are brown and look like they are slightly dead – this means the corn is set and will be at its sweetest. Avoid all cobs with green or yellow tops – they need more time to ripen. Carrier bag at the ready, grab the whole corn and snap it away from the plant – it will come off in your hand. Pick as many as you like and pay for your produce in the shop when you’re 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 and like its name suggests, this comes early in the season and is beautifully yellow. We follow this Goldcrest which continues our season until September, and this is slightly golden in colour. Both taste very similar and we recommend picking and eating on the same day!
