Pick your own, fresh from the fields


Our Pumpkin Patch is open! 

 From October 20- 30th


New for this year:

  • Fiamma Pizza will be coming to our field, serving delicious handmade wood-fired pizzas every day.
  • We are leaving the pumpkins attached to their vines, to keep them at their best. Please bring shears if you can. (If not, don’t worry. We have spares)
  • Due to the wonderfully wet British summer, some of the pumpkins have grown extremely large (>25kg). Please ensure you are familiar with basic manual handling before harvesting our largest fruits. (Book an early date in the season for these; they’ll run out fast!)
  • All our classic games are back, including the famous Hit The Witch Apple Catapult, and some new creations!

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

Thurloxton Updates

When is the best time to come to Thurloxton Farm?

Every year is different, so we send out a few emails over the season letting you know when the fruits are starting, at their best or finishing.

Our Farm 

As well as fruit, we grow wheat, oilseeds and peas on the farm and run a flock of sheep.
The wheat and oilseed rape (the fields of yellow flowers) are planted in the autumn using zero tillage regenerative methods, in our quest to improve our naturally shallow and hungry soils that rise into the Quantock hills above the fruit farm, and to minimise our impact on the environment.
In the spring we plant the peas, sunflowers, pumpkins and re-plant half of our strawberry patch.
The crops are harvested in the summer using our combine harvester, the seeds stored for use in the winter as animal feed, crushed into vegetable oil, or processed for human consumption.
Alongside the crops we keep approximately 200 sheep, which graze our steep valleys.

Pumpkins at Thurloxton

This year we are growing pumpkins for Halloween.
Come and join us in October for a spooky walk, games, PYO pumpkins and a carving tent.

Our Team

The Quick family have farmed in Thurloxton, on the foothills of the Quantocks, for most of the last century, growing various crops, and running a flock of sheep. In 1973 the Pick Your Own was founded with one acre of strawberries. Since then it has grown to meet increasing demand and we now produce a wide range of fruit and vegetables on 25 acres of rich, red, soil.
We have always strived to give our customers the best. That is why the fruit is grown solely for pick your own, giving you first choice and guaranteeing top quality produce in the fields.

Family Run Business Since 1937

Lovely time picking strawberries, raspberries & gooseberries. My parents used to take my children when they were small & they loved it. Now I’m taking my own grandaughter! Keeping up a family tradition. Friendly, helpful staff and afterwards it was lovely to enjoy one of the ice-cream they sell sitting in the sunshine. Definately will be back & thoroughly recommend.
