Home grown Fruit Calendar / picking seasons

Crop seasons are weather dependent, so please note that this information is an approximate guide only.

Please call 01733 233270 for up-to-date drop information and listen carefully to the recorded message. Note that this message is altered as soon as the crop situation changes. We therefore always suggest if you are after a particular crop, you call before you set out on your journey to us.

We can of course never guarantee a crop, due to weather, nature, the number of customers visiting us and the amount each customer picks.

We often have frozen fruit available to purchase too.
