Pick Your Own

Strawberry Picking in York. We’ve listed lots of places here where you can pick your own fruit in York and North Yorkshire.


At Church Farm, we are here to spoil you. When you are visiting our family farm, we pride ourselves in going above and beyond to make sure your day is the very best it can be.

Visit our farm from June – August for safe, socially distanced PYO

All our soft fruits are grown uncovered in the fresh air and ripen naturally in the sunshine. Spread across 15 acres, there is plenty of space to bring the whole family.
We grow strawberries, gooseberries, raspberries, blackberries, potatoes and sunflowers that are ready to pick from June – September at different times. Check out our website for ‘What’s going on’ at the farm to plan your visit and book tickets.

1. CHOOSE YOUR DATE & BOOK YOUR ARRIVAL TIMESLOT – There are multiple time slots per day. We will release dates a week in advance. There is a booking fee of £1.50.
2. CAR PARKING Entry onto the farm is £10 per car. Please allow 15 minutes to park and enter the fields. On arrival, please follow signs directing you to the strawberry fields.
3. HAVE YOUR QR CODE CONFIRMATION EMAIL TO HAND. OUR TEAM WILL SCAN YOU ENTRY INTO THE PYO FIELDS. You will receive an order confirmation email as proof of your ticket entry. As part of your ticket purchase we are giving you £10 credit to spend anywhere on the farm during your visit; either the PYO Fruit Shop, our Farmshop or the Take Out kiosks.
4. PUT THE DATE IN YOUR DIARY AND WE WILL SEE YOU THERE! We are excited to welcome you back to the farm. We have made some changes to ensure that we can keep all our visitors and our team as safe as possible.

PYO BOOKING LINK

Summer 2021

The Balloon Tree is open for Pick Your Own.

Just like last season, this year it is a matter of booking your “Picking Slots”. During none school holidays, walk-in pickers are welcome Monday to Friday, but pre-booking is essential for weekends.

Days will be released slowly to control the number of pickers on site at any one time and to ensure there are enough strawberries ready. As the fruit ripens, more and more slots will be released.

Pre-booking page, with more details HERE

Watch FACEBOOK for updates

Currently available on their PYO site; they have Gooseberries 🍈 and the King of the PYO, the quintessential sign of British Summer… the Strawberry 🍓. Plenty more fruit is to come, with all announcements featured on their social media.

Fruit & Veg Picking

There are some great groups in York such as Edible York who map out edibles around the city and you can join in with Abundance York who pick and distribute surplus fruit growing on common land & private gardens. Both links will take you to other fruity projects like Fulford Community Orchard (loads more if these aren’t local to you).

Lots of free treats if you know where to look!

(Thanks to LC for the tip!)
