Secretts PYO Café

This year our cafe is back with an extended menu. In addition to serving hot drinks and cakes we are also have freshly baked quiche, salads and savouries from our on site kitchen. As before we also offer children’s pick n mix lunchboxes with sandwiches, crisps, fruit, chocolate bars etc.

T’Jays Pay & Play at the Pick Your Own

Back for the second summer at Secretts is T”Jays Pay & Play. Run by T’Jays for us.  They are located at the entrance to the PYO. Lots of great kids activities for children of ages.

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!

Seasonality

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.
