Summer time = Pick your own fruit time!
What could taste better than fresh picked juicy strawberries straight from the field?
How about raspberries?
Blackcurrants or Redcurrants for making jam?
Tayberries, Blackberries or Gooseberries for making desserts or just eating raw?
Throughout the year we sell home grown tomatoes and cucumbers (from late May to November). Both taste and size are far superior to anything you'll ever buy in a supermarket! Try them and find out.
Fresh picked fruit is so much tastier than anything bought in a shop. Fancy an outdoor day out with lots of fresh fruit, plants and good things to eat?
We are around one mile from Solihull town centre. Widney Manor Station is only 500m from us.

How does Pick Your Own Fruit work?
It’s very simple. Just come down and pick! We can provide punnets and baskets. After picking we weigh the fruit and you pay for the weight picked. Roughly speaking, a large punnet of strawberries might cost about £3 to £4.
