A lovely activity with the kids is Pick Your Own and what’s more, it encourages them to eat healthily too. It is also a great way to support local businesses. This year, PYO is going to be a little bit different due to COVID 19. However, we are so lucky that they will be opening this year, albeit with restrictions.
This week, The Balloon Tree at Gate Helmsley opens for PYO. This year it is a matter of booking you “Picking Slots”. Days will be released slowly to control the number of pickers on site at anyone time and to ensure there are enough strawberries ready. As the fruit ripens, more and more will be released.
