The below post was written when we visited the Grays Farm back in June 2018 but not too much has changed, apart from some covid-safety measures e.g. one person per family in the barn where you collect your picking punnet and pay for your pickings and one way arrows on the main footpaths.
Last weekend we headed to Grays Farm to ‘pick your own’. I have not been fruit picking for years and last week we decided that it would be a lovely family activity to do outside in the sunshine at the weekend. So we headed to Gray’s Farm to pick strawberries on Saturday afternoon and we all loved the ‘pick your own’ experience.
The pick your own farm was busy but there was still room for everyone to pick their own fruits and vegetables. I was pleasantly surprised by the array of fruit and vegetables on offer, as any other ‘pick your own’ farm I had previously been to (in a different part of the country) only tended to offer soft fruit picking. At Grays Farm you could pick strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, red currants, black currants, beetroots, runner beans, spinach, broad beans and more, obviously depending what was in season, view the crops calendar. You could either buy a large picking punnet or have a small picking punnet for free and then once you picked your fruit or vegetables you paid for the weight of fruit or vegetables you had picked. There was no entry or picking fee.
We spent a lovely hour at the farm, wandering around the crops and discovering what we thought was the best place to pick our strawberries. There was free parking on site and a farm shop selling produce, ice creams and drinks.
We certainly plan to visit again and have really enjoyed our strawberries this week.
