British cherries! Get them before they’re gone

Melissa eating cherries 1 Unless you’ve been driving or walking around with your eyes closed, you’ve probably seen the amount of road stalls selling glorious British Cherries. Grab them whilst they are still around, because once the Season’s over they just won’t be the same until next year.

Better still, why not try cherry orchard picking? It’s such fun and particularly popular with children – so many of whom don’t know where their food comes from. PYO is a great way of letting them know how things grow.

Q gardens also has a wonderful farm shop, which stocks deli and butchers selling cheeses, pies, sausage rolls and home made ice cream made from their own fruit! It’s open 9am-6pm daily and the tea room serving hot food until 2.30pm and tea and cake until 4pm.

Their Maize Maze has just opened – so make a day of it!

What’s for picking?
Their website offers information and advice about the pick-your-own.
