Days Out York

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.

The 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.

TB June 2018

We went to the one near askham bryan college yesterday (bluebell farm I think it’s called). It was £3.90 per kilo which I thought was good. We got 2 decent sized punnets for £4.

The fruit fields are open from mid/late June starting with Strawberry and Gooseberry picking and the fruit season finishes at the end of July. We are open 7 days a week, 10am to 6pm. Social distancing rules apply.

Woodside Farm is reasonable ( I think it was £2.70 per kilo for strawberries and £4 for raspberries) and not too far
