Days Out: Garsons Farm PYO

A lot of friends have recommended going to Garsons Farm to pick fruit and veggies. So we packed our sun hats and wellies and set off for a fun family day out.

Garsons Farm is very big. There is so much to do. There is also a very big Garden Centre with cafe and a lovely farm shop. We, of course, did not go early and we had to be back for a BBQ at a friend's, but we still managed to pick a variety of things and it was a fun afternoon.

We first picked raspberries and made the mistake of going to the first field where there were hardly any. Only when we were driving out did we see the other raspberry field full of raspberries!!!

The farm is quite big so make sure you have the right footwear and maybe even drive to various patches. I made the mistake of wearing flip flops. Thinking it would be OK but, of course, there are muddy fields. It is a farm after all, DUH!

You say potato ...
If you do go to a PYO farm make sure you check out their crop map and find out what is in season for picking.

Not only can you pick fruit and veggies, there are flowers too! So but if you do want flowers make sure you bring some cutters and maybe pick them last. My flowers only just survived in the car ride home.

I highly recommend going to a PYO farm as it is a great opportunity for the boys to see where food actually comes from.We will definitely be going back again and really make a day of it. A great family day out. Also a great No Technology Moment activity!
