Pick Your Own Strawberries in Gloucestershire

Pick your own strawberries, raspberries at Over Farm Market & Primrose Vale Farm

Itís always been one of those signs of the change in seasons. You know that summer has arrived when the strawberry season begins.

Picking your own berries is a great family outing that children of all ages seem to love. Nothing quite beats the satisfaction of enjoying your own hand picked succulent berries as you dig out your favourite recipes. Itís a bit of an educational experience for children as well, as they get to see where some of their food comes from, and how it grows.

Experience of picking fruit with children has however given me the insight to pass on a couple of valuable tips Ė wet wipes and old clothes!!

At Primrose Vale and Over Farm Market you donít even have to bend down, as the strawberries are at waist height esuring that your picking is an easy and enjoyable experience on a sunny day. So that s great news for us, but bad news for the bugs!!
