We recently visited Stonepitts Farm with the children. It’s changed very little from my own childhood memories of the farm. You collect the containers and then spend as much time as you want filling them up with whatever fruit is currently in season.

Today it was strawberries we had come to pick. Although we have been lucky this year with a good crop from the garden I had wanted my children to experience the pick your own farm. We spent less than an hour filling up two large boxes of strawberries before heading back for a much needed ice cream. The children thought it was great fun and having turned the picked strawberries into one of my biggest batches of jam this year, we should have enough jam to see use through the winter and perhaps even beyond.
