May 20th 2013
It has been a long winter and our fruit season will be very late this year. We are still enjoying a wonderful blossom season, but it is three weeks behind what we expect in a 'normal' year (whatever that is).
At the moment I expect to open for strawberries and gooseberries on about 20 June, and by the middle of July we should have loads of cherries and summer fruits. All depending on our wonderful weather, of course!
I will start to update the webpage weekly from now on, so that you know how long you have to eke out those last pots of jam.
We look forward to seeing you on the farm,
