Strawberry Picking at PYO

Hey readers,

One of my summer bucket list activities was to go to a pick your own farm and pick some strawberries with the boys. Well I can confirm we have achieved that and though we did in late August, I finally got the time to sit down and blog about it now, better late then never eh!

So where do I start; well the location was and I may be a bit dumb but I just assumed that it was just strawberries. There is so much more you can pick; sweetcorn, courgette, tomatoes the list goes on.


The boys natuarrly loved being little helpers and being independent with their own box going along the field and picking out strawberries.





We also went to the sweetcorn field which was great fun to get lost in as the plants grow so tall. It feels like a little world of it’s own in there.

The boys loved playing chase down the isles with each other and was lovely watching on by seeing them be free and just playing like a typical child.


It was really relaxing getting away form the hustle and bursele surrpouned by fields ans we were luckily that day as the sun was shinning beautfilly down on us.

I dod love doing something a little bit different and giving thre boys a new experience.

I can confirm that the fruit tastes amazing and so much more flavour then the shop brought fruit. It ewas surpissing a little bit cheaper as well at the farm which is always an added bonus.

If you have not been to a PYO farm then I definately recommend it as it was so much fun so much better then a noisy soft play area *vom*!

  1. I’m with you all the way, PYO over a play area any day. You have some great rewards to bring home and even the things the kids didn’t think they liked mine would always try if they had picked it themselves. Looks like yu all had a lovely time and a very different kind of day out. I hope it will become an annual outting, mine always look forward to going, even now as teens.

    Thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

  2. PYO is so much fun and the fruit always tastes so much better than anything you buy in a supermarket. Love your photo of the boys running through the cornfield – it brought back memories of my childhood growing up living opposite a farm – we used to squeeze through a gap in the fence and go exploring the cornfield in late summer/early autumn! #countrykids

  3. PYO is wonderful – we didn’t make it to strawberries this year (we had so much to cram into summer) but now I am sad as this looks amazing! Such a fun activitiy for a few hours, and very tasty too! I am surprised at the cost though – I always thought PYO would be a lot more expensive than shop-bought! #countrykids

  4. Oh yes, fruit always tastes better when just picked and eaten out in the open!
    So glad you had a great time at PYO, they are amazing places a. In my experience they are a good way to encourage my children to eat new things, they’ll eat them if they’ve picked them (and even like them!!)
