Pick Your Own 2023 starts Saturday 17th June

At Church Farm, we are here to spoil you. When you are visiting our family farm, we pride ourselves in going above and beyond to make sure your day is the very best it can be.

Come and visit us for a fun family day out and enjoy our fresh delicious soft fruits, chosen by your fair hands!

We have a range of different varieties of strawberries on the farm including Florence, Alegro, Sonata, Dahli, Rumba, Elegance, Sonsation, Faith and Malwina – which are selected for their excellent taste, ripening date and the ability to grow in the soil. They are grown uncovered and therefore ripen naturally in the sunshine. They are all bedded up with straw and tended to by hand.

PLUS NEW – Table top strawberries!

We also grow 3 acres of delicious raspberries as well as gooseberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants and blackberries which can all be picked on our family-run farm.

Sunflowers and potatoes will be ready for PYO some time in JULY 2023. Keep checking our social pages for details.


There are multiple time slots per day. You can arrive any time within your chosen 60 minute time slot and stay as long as you like on the farm. Please remember last entry into the PYO fields is between 4-5pm and the field closes at 5.30pm.
