Welcome to Hawkswick Lodge Fruit Farm

Hawkswick Lodge Farm is located in the Hertfordshire countryside just to the north of St Albans on the A1081.

We are a family run business, growing soft fruit including Strawberries, Raspberries, Red Currants, Blackcurrants, Blackberries and Gooseberries. Our emphasis is on personal, friendly service and we pride ourselves on the variety, quality and freshness of our produce.

PYO SEASON 2020

We plan to be open for this season from around the 20th June for fruit picking, hopefully starting with strawberries and possible gooseberries and blackberries. But with COVID 19 social distancing restrictions this season will be a little different

To meet with government guidelines we have the following changes in place. We request that all our customers follow the new rules to help keep our staff and you the customers safe:-

  1. We have introduced a new entrance and exit only one way system into and out of the fruit fields.
  2. Please keep a minimum of 2 metres away from other people whilst picking, there is plenty of space for this so should not be a problem, ideally pick in a different row.
  3. We will only accept card payments. Contactless payments up to £45. No cash payments will be accepted.
  4. Only 2 adults per car please. This is very important and children living in the same house are welcome.
  5. We have introduced a queuing system with markings, we ask our customers to keep to this distancing.
  6. Due to health and safety reasons our toilet facilities will be closed.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our pick your own farm this June.

Once the farm is open we will have daily news on the availability of the fruits both on the website and also on our answer phone Tel No. 01727831224

Thank you.
