PYO

Last page update Sunday 29th August 2021

Pick Your Own and Café will be closed for the 2021 Season apart from planned events

 

PUMPKIN WEEK 2021

The PYO and Cafe are remaining closed for now due to Covid-19. We have had to put long term plans in place with regard to our crops and due to the uncertainty and lock downs we have had to find an alternative income stream for our soft fruit crops for this summer (2021).  It is a possibility that we may open for some pop up picking days during the season. These will be advertised here and on our social media platforms. For news updates you can also sign up to our Newsletter published on the first day of each month with additional emails sent for events such as these. The sign up form can be accessed here.

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.

We do not allow dogs into the areas where crops are grown for the public to pick or in the PYO enclosure.

Dogs are allowed on site on our grassed areas and 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.
