Last page update Thursday 2nd July 2020
We have had a lot of people asking what our plans are for the Pick Your Own are and as much as we would like to open we are unable to do so at the moment. This is a difficult decision for us as the poly tunnels where the strawberries are grown are too narrow to put proper social distancing in place that is safe for you and our staff. So all that we are able to say that at the moment is that the Pick Your Own will remain closed. All our fresh grown produce is being sold via our farm shop. This means you can enjoy our strawberries, raspberries and other crops while they are in season. We will give regular updates regarding the PYO so its worth following us on our social media platforms or checking our website which we regularly update.
So for now the PYO will remain CLOSED to the public. This will be reviewed every week.
Events and T’Jays Pay n Play
With regard to events again we are monitoring the current situation and will keep you posted as soon as we have any definite news.
Pick Your Own and Café
The PYO and Cafe are remaining closed for now due to Covid-19.
On Site Etiquette
We have a few guidelines we would really appreciate if you would follow whilst on site in addition to our picking guidelines (listed below).
Only food purchased on site should be eaten in the PYO enclosure. The seating provided is for paying customers only.
Dogs are welcome at Secretts on our grounds ( grassed areas) outside the PYO site. For health and safety reasons we do not allow dogs into the areas where crops are grown for the public to pick. Dogs should be kept on leads whilst on site. A poop and scoop policy is in place at all times.
Parking at Secretts
We have plenty of free on-site parking at Secretts. When you enter the site from the Chapel Lane end you will drive past the farm shop car park and carry on past the greenhouses and lakes until you reach the PYO which is signposted. If you arrive from the Squires Garden Centre site you will reach the PYO after the plum trees
Pick Your Own Guidelines
To ensure that everyone can enjoy the PYO at Secretts may we respectfully ask that you follow these guidelines;
Collect your punnet and talk to us in the greenhouse before you start picking. We will tell you where to find the best fruit and let you know what is available and the prices.
- Children should be supervised at all times; Secretts is a commercial farm so tractors and other vehicles are moving around the farm all the time.
- Please do not eat our crops before you have paid for them. We know it is tempting to have a little taste while you picking but please just taste one and then pay for the rest!
The availability of crops will depend on the season’s weather conditions. If you are looking to pick a specific crop, please call 01483 520555 ahead of your visit to avoid disappointment. We will update crop availability on social media and on our website.
