1st June, 2015
Welcome to the first of our updates to the coming fruit season. May has been generally cold wet and windy with lower temperatures than we would normally expect. As a result although the strawberries are growing well we do not expect to open until the third weekend in June. We hope to have our first crop of strawberries and possibly green gooseberries. Raspberries and cane fruits will be a week or so later.
Next update 7th June.
The fruit season has now finished for us this year and we would like to thank all who have visited the farm to enjoy the excellent picking weather.
We look forward to seeing you again next year.
