Visiting a pick your own farm is a great day out for the family, and a lovely way to learn about and eat the season in an idyllic setting.
It’s hard to find fresher fruit and veg than those you’ve picked yourself, and so much fun to take it home and decide how to cook and eat it, especially if you’ve ended up with something you wouldn’t normally buy.
Local seasonal crops include anything from gooseberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, apples, pears and plums to asparagus, sweet corn, runner beans, courgettes, rhubarb, marrows and pumpkins. Just make sure you ring the farm in advance to check opening hours and availability.
