Our PYO season gets up and running with strawberries, then the cherries. 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!



*  You are required to pay for the fruit before eating it.  

*  Remember the PYO order: pick, pay, eat.

*  Please follow the directions given by our staff or signage. 

*  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!

*  Sorry, no picnics in the orchards or fields.  

*  Do not allow your children to play with the fruit - we work hard to grow it and don't enjoy seeing it wasted.

*  Please follow instructions regarding the use of ladders when picking cherries.

*  Dogs are not allowed in the orchards or fields.

*  Please be aware that we only accept cash in the PYO hut, so come prepared!  However, we can accept                             credit cards in the shop.

*  We reserve the right to close the PYO fields because of bad weather or lack of fruit.
