Last page update 24th May 2019
The Pick Your Own is now open for the 2019 season. To start with we will just open on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10am – 2pm. We currently have asparagus rhubarb and swiss chard available and anticipate the strawberries will start at the end of May. Our cafe will be open serving hot drinks and light snacks. From Saturday 25th May the PYO will open daily from 9am – 5pm apart from Monday May Bank Holiday (Monday 27th May) when we will open from 10am – 4pm. We post regular picking lists so please check back here or follow us on our social media platforms for regular updates. In the case of adverse windy or rainy weather we may close the PYO – so always check ahead before visiting in poor weather.
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.
