We are pleased to announce, after careful consideration and planning, our Pick Your Own is now open.
However, this will be a season like none we have ever seen before and we ask that you read the information below carefully before visiting.
Thurloxton Farm is open for PYO food sales only, not a leisure activity
To meet with government guidelines we have the following changes in place. We request that you please follow the new rules to help keep our family and staff and you, the customers safe
Do not visit if you are unwell
While there is no evidence CV19 is transmitted via food or food packaging, please do not visit if you are showing any symptoms
We reserve the right to refuse entry to anyone at anytime if we feel the safety of staff or customers is at risk.
We will close the gate when we reach our safe capacity
Small groups only
We are controlling visitor numbers to maintain social distancing and ensure as many people as possible can come to pick fruit. Customers should be from the same household and groups larger than 4 people will not be allowed entry
Children under 10 must be accompanied by at least one adult
Younger children may not understand the need for social distancing and risk spreading Covid-19 amongst other visitors
Keep 2 meters distance from other pickers
Maintain distancing from other customers not from your household
Please remember, we are open only for food sales not outdoor excursions or social visits with friends
To help prevent the spread, we are not accepting cash payments at present. We can accept contactless and card payments
For health and safety reasons there are currently no toilet facilities on site. Please bear this in mind when planning your visit
Please bring your own containers to pick into, these will be weighed at entry
Customers must sanitise their hands prior to entering the PYO
WHO standard sanitizer will be provided
Please do not eat the fruit as you pick. We advise that no fruit is consumed until you have washed it at home
There should be no eating on site
Please be careful to only touch and pick ripe fruit
If you touch it, you must pick & pay for it
Help us prevent peak time queues
Our busiest times are weekends and when the sun comes out, please consider visiting the farm during quieter times
Weekdays (fruit picking is educational for those home-schooling)
Cloudy days; the temperature may be a little cooler but less people visit the farm when the sun isn’t shining
Please be patient, respect our family, staff and other pickers
We are open daily, 10am – 6pm
We are getting near the end of our PYO season, strawberries are pretty much over for the year.
This morning we have:
A few Loganberries & Broadbeans
Join our mailing list below to receive occasional email updates about when other fruits are ripe, and when pumpkin picking tickets are on sale.
Pick your own is as easy as it sounds!
Come along and enjoy the countryside and the freshest fruits
Fun for all ages to harvest the soft fruits of summer, in a beautiful, peaceful field.
You are welcome to bring your own containers to pick into, just ask us to weigh them before picking
