Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Southwest England? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Southwest England,
sorted by county. Those that offer organic or sustainably grown produce are identified by the words "organic" and/or "sustainable" in Green, next to their name
. The U-pick crops they offer follow the name of the farm. To search the page for a specific crop, use Ctrl-F (or on an ipad or Mac, use their "search on this page" function)
If they have a website, the name will be in blue and underlined; click on it and it will open their website. Beware of copycat websites (such as the one that starts with "pickit" and the one that ends with ".farms"; they do not update their information, they just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly! I put dates to indicate when we last received an update from each farm,
and I make updates daily (each farm as their info changes). See the customer and farmer menus at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!
And if you know of any I missed and want to add them or correct the
information, please let me know!

Click here for
directions to Trehane Nursery. Opening Hours: We are currently open
Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 4.30pm. Blueberries usually are available
starting in mid July, then for several weeks. For the first time we will
have blueberries available under polytunnels for P.Y.O. right from the
beginning of the season - so don't let a bit of rain put you off coming.
WARNING! Last year huge demand meant that on two occasions during the season
we had to close for a couple of days to let the fruit ripen up. So if you
are coming any distance we strongly advise phoning in advance (01202 873490)
to check that there is plenty of ripe fruit available. Our PYO Plantation is
on the same site as the Camellia Nursery. Planted in 1965 it was one of the
first UK blueberry plantings. The bushes are grown entirely naturally with
no chemical fertilisers, herbicides or pesticides. We do not even have
irrigation on the PYO rows which means the bushes have to send out roots
searching for water and nutrients. This leads to intense flavoured fruit -
rated by a leading supermarket as the finest tasting blueberries they stock
