Pick Your Own
PLEASE SEE PYO RULES DURING COVID-19 BELOW.
We may have to close the PYO with no warning due to shortages in the crop, we try to have a full supply of all our fruit and veg over the season but sometimes the weather does get the better of us.
It's the best value for your money when buying local fresh fruit and vegetables. We start with Asparagus in late April and continue on with Strawberries, Raspberries, Gooseberries and other fruits and vegetables until the end of October.
The Tractor Shack is open Tuesday-Sunday serving hot and cold drinks and takeaway snacks.

Pick Your Own Rules during Covid-19
Please observe these rules carefully and try wherever possible to tie your visit in with a click and collect or a visit to the farm shop, so as to reduce unnecessary travel. Sadly but understandably, PYO cannot be treated as a social event or a ‘day out’ right now - though we hope that this will change over time. We urge all our customers to be sensible, be safe, and stick to these rules.⠀
1. Our staff will manage the PYO queue and direct all customers to a designated area.
2. You will be allowed to pick with people from your household up to a maximum of four. You must stay together at all times whilst picking.
3. Only pick from the area you are directed to by a member of staff, do not wander anywhere else in the pick your own. This is to protect both customers and staff.
4. Social distancing from other customers must be maintained at all times, the rows of strawberries will provide a physical barrier.
5. A maximum number of people will be allowed in each field at time, depending on strawberry availability and field size.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO BOOK A SLOT OR TIME TO VISIT
Enjoy 45 acres of farm - COVID - 19 UPDATE please just go to fields that you are directed to and are available for picking.
We have 45 acres of fields to walk around so there is plenty to choose from. The fields are marked with each crop - some may be picking now, some finished picking, and some not yet ready for picking. The main fruit crops to pick your own are strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants, redcurrants and blackberries. Vegetable crops comprise, asparagus, broad beans and carrots. Asparagus is grown in a separate field near the Oxford Crematorium and has a much earlier season than our other crops.
We grow many other crops including potatoes, gladioli, artichokes, sweetcorn, green beans and pinks that our pickers pick and so not available for pick your own. (Unless you like a long walk to get to them!).
Many parents find introducing their children to a Pick Your Own is an exciting adventure. They can really understand where their food comes from by touching and seeing not from a textbook. There is plenty of room for the children to get plenty of exercise while doing it and they really can't get into too much difficulty - though occasionally some get lost (temporarily!) in the maze of fields.
