Our 2018 fruit picking season is now over and we are closed.
Strawberry picking will start again mid June 2019.
We started the popular outdoor pick your own in Horsforth in 1984 concentrating on growing strawberries and raspberries, with a number of varieties of each to enable as long a picking season as possible for our customers.
We keep things simple growing the strawberries in the ground, rather than in raised beds. We find that not only do the strawberries taste better this way, but think it is more fun for the kids to pick them like this, as they can rummage amongst the leaves trying to find the biggest sweetest strawberry.
Raspberries have always been grown in the ground too, but we are also now trialling some in pots to see if we can reduce disease susceptibility which raspberries can be prone to.
As the fruit is grown in open ground the season is strictly weather dependent. Generally picking starts sometime in June and finishes in early August. Once the season starts our facebook page is updated on daily basis telling our customers what we are picking and how the season is going. Once picking starts we are open everyday, and will only close if it rains heavily and persistently.
We are also trialling pumpkins for the 2018 Halloween season – more details to follow.
If you would like us to inform you when the season starts please contact us as it does vary from year to year.
Horsforth is near to Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate.
Free on site parking is available in the field adjacent to the picking fields.
