Pick Your Own

Featured Listing

Balloon Tree Farm Cafe

PrintThe award-winning farm shop and newly expanded café specialises in home-grown fruit, veg, and local and rare breed meats, plus the finest homemade food including quiches, scones, soups and seasonal dishes. Pick your own in the summer. A great day out for all the family – entertain the children in the brand new play area and visit the animal corner with feeding platform, while you relax in the cafe garden.

Our superfresh homegrown asparagus crop is now ready. The asparagus crop thrives in our sandy soil, being a mediterranean crop, and the quality and taste of the yield benefit tremendously from this. Watch out for the asparagus specialities in the cafe and on the deli in the farmshop.

Our excellent delicatessen serves a wide range of delicious hot and cold goodies. The bakery and deli ovens are also on display so you can see the cakes being baked in all their glory. There is also a sandwich station where superfresh sandwiches will be made to order in front of the customers. We are making it easier for customers to eat on the go with take away tea and coffees from the deli, and a good choice of easy lunches with hot and cold sandwiches and pies to suit busy lifestyles.

Opening Times: Open seven days a week, Farmshop 9am-5.30pm, Cafe 9am – 4.30pm.

Not only is the food in the cafe excellent and service lovely; the outdoor play area with tractor/digger themes is perfect for my vehicle-obsessed toddler. Two goats to pet too, plus pick your own fruit in season, and a Hallowe’en pumpkin patch. The produce in the farm shop is wonderful too (although I always spend a fortune in the shop on lovely stuff!), and plenty of parking.

My son loves the playground as you can sit in the cafe and watch them play. As well as the pick your own being really good in the picking seasons and the farm shop and cafe food is lovely.
