Essential Food Business – Pick Your Own Raspberries – 21st November 2020 – FULL – 

We are opening for pick your own raspberries this weekend – 21st November 2020.

We have fields of late Autumn raspberries that we do not want to see wasted and unfortunately these can’t be picked conventionally due to a range of factors such as; current market conditions, a warmer than expected November and labour so late in the year. Healthy fresh food is essential in these times and we will not see it go to waste and rot in the field.

You will need to book a time slot online. Time slots have limited numbers and you will need to arrive during your time slot.

Costs: You will need to pay £4 in advance per adult, this is your time slot and will cover the cost of your first punnet. You will then be able to pick as many large punnets as you want for just £1 per punnet. Each punnet contains approximately 600g – A lot of raspberries! These additional punnets will be paid for on the day. We will be able to take contactless card payment.

The field is completely outside in the open and muddy so you must be ready for the elements. Please wear appropriate footwear.

If there is adverse weather conditions we will have to refund and cancel. Heavy winds or hard frost between now and the weekend could remove the crop. 

Update 20th November – Small frost last night much to our annoyance. Checking crop could possibly mean fruit becomes more suitable for jam than fresh. 

 

  • You will need to book a time slot online. Time slots have limited numbers.
  • You will be required to respect social distancing at all times.
  • You will be required to hand sanitise before going into the field.
  • Like a supermarket you are currently encouraged not to touch things such as loose fruit unless you want them. If you touch any raspberries you must pick it and place it in the punnet or discard on the ground. If you are seen touching fruit without picking you will be asked to leave immediately.
  • A further briefing will be provided before being allowed to pick.
  • We want to thank you for your interest 🙂
