Remember that you are required to pay for the fruit before eating it. Remember the PYO order: pick, pay, eat. We patrol the orchards & fields and monitor pickers' behaviour. Please do not allow your children, or anyone else in your party, to eat the fruit prior to purchase. We know that you are likely to try a small sample of the fruit, but this is NOT a free lunch!
Do not allow your children to play with the fruit - we work hard to grow it and don't enjoy seeing it wasted.
Dogs are not allowed in the orchards or fields.
We do not accept credit cards in the PYO hut (across the road) - cash only.
Please note: we will not tolerate anyone abusing our hospitality by wasting fruit, eating significant quantities of fruit before purchase or allowing their children to play with the fruit prior to purchase. Pickers will be monitored, and anyone behaving in an inappropriate manner will be asked to leave. You are required to pay for all the fruit that you pick.
Please take the time to look at our PYO Health & Safety Advice.
Watch this space for information about:
PYO raspberries & blackberries
PYO plums & damsons
PYO cherries & morello cherries:
Our PYO season gets up and running with strawberries, cherries & gooseberries and generally runs through until September without a break so you will always be able to pick something. Here's our guide about what is in season when. ‘Picking your own’ is a great experience – you may be having a party and want to serve fresh strawberries for the dessert, you may want a quantity of raspberries for jam-making or simply want to enjoy spending some time in the cherry orchard picking a rare treat – the Harwell cherry. It’s a particularly popular activity for children – so many of whom don’t know where their food comes from – this is a great way of letting them know!
Please be aware that we only accept cash in the PYO hut so please come prepared.
PYO hut open 9am - 5pm, 7 days a week.
