Flower Farm has been owned by the Deeley family since 1974, when Peter and June (grandpa and grandma Deeley) first opened their fruit picking fields to the public.
Farmer Patrick’s brother Chris (pictured above – and also a farmer!) looks after the pick your own fields, from the planting to the watering, and the nurturing of the crops.
Over the years, we’ve welcomed thousands of visitors to Flower Farm, who enjoy picking strawberries, raspberries, and now pumpkins in the fields surrounding our farm shop and tea room.
Our fruit picking seasons are*:
Strawberries: End of June – July (season finished)
Raspberries: End of June – August (open)
Cherries: End of June – July (season finished)
Victoria Plums: August (coming soon)
*Please note farming crops of any kind is weather dependent, so the information on this page is correct.
If a PYO crop doesn’t say open (when it looks like it should be) it’s due to bad weather, meaning the crop isn’t ready for picking yet.
We will always announce on social media when a new PYO crop is ready, and update this website page too.
How does the pick your own work?
When you come to the farm, simply enter the shop and inform our team that you would like to go picking, you will then be handed a punnet to place your fruit into, then return to the shop after you have been picking to pay for your produce – it’s as simple as that!
Pick your own opening hours:
Seven days a week from 9-5pm – with last entry to the fields at 5pm.
