My parents used to take me to Pick-Your-Own farms when I was about the same age as Lil Sis is now. I remember walking along, eating a lot more strawberries than I put in my basket, thinking this was just the BEST PLACE EVER!

There’s a farm just up the road from us we love to take the girls to now; they grow the usual PYO standards – raspberries, gooseberries, blueberries, and strawberries – and recently added a cute outdoor cafe in a yurt, so it’s always a nice day out.

This pic was taken on the day that temps soared to 30+ degrees throughout most of the UK, so we were absolutely roasting as we wandered through the strawberry fields strawberry fields picking the biggest, juiciest ones we could find. I had planned to make jam with the berries, but they were so delicious we polished them all off for dessert that night.

Must be time for another visit, then…

  1. Love PYO, we have to drive quite a way to get to one though. Lovely shot.

    • Such a simple (relatively) cheap day out but so much fun, isn’t it? xx

  2. Oh I’m so jealous, we haven’t been strawberry picking yet! Wow that’s hit too! Love her dress, very cute x

    • It was soooooo hot that day – thank goodness for air conditioning in the car on the way home!!! xx

  3. They never last in our house either, do join me for Country Kids

  4. We love going to PYO, was many of them eaten?

    Thank you for linking up

  5. It is one of my favourite things to do in the summer, although I really like picking fresh peas and eating them. I hope you have many more adventures at the PYO soon #CountryKids

    • I had an entire bag of freshly shelled peas for a snack the other night – so delicious! xx

  6. Oh, the joys of picking fresh fruit. My little got to do this at nursery a few weeks ago. Now I’m getting hungry 🙂

  7. Always wanted to do something like this!

    Love your photo and how the plants lead to the direction where your daughter is heading! #MySundayPhoto

  8. Do you know I have NEVER been Strawberry picking and neither have the Beans! Every year we say that we will and then we forget. I love this photo, so simple and innocent xx
