Follow the farm
The Summer PYO will close on Sunday 24th September.
Like many other PYO Farms, this is the best way to manage our crop and ensure a consistent supply of fruit for our customers throughout the picking season.
Bookings are required during our peak months of June, July and August - there is no need to book in September.

Crockford Bridge Farm is a working farm and business. We respectfully ask all visitors read the following rules which are a condition of entry. We reserve the right to remove or refuse entry to anyone failing to follow our rules.
- Do not eat our produce before paying at the exit tills. PYO farms rely on trust, eating fruit in the fields before paying for it is theft and compromises our ability to keep the farm open. We rely on the sale of our crops for our livelihood.
- Produce must be paid for when leaving the picking fields. Please do not climb over fences or visit any other area of the farm before paying for crops. Doing so is generally viewed as an attempt to avoid payment.
- Receipts must be kept as proof of payment at all times. Due to theft, security checks are in place.
- Only pick crops in the designated, signposted location. Picking locations change from week to week and when fields are closed, this is for very real Health and Safety reasons even if the crops look ready to pick. There may be plants growing across the farm and in hedgerows that are not fit for human consumption. Be aware that high pressure irrigation systems, shooting, pest control and moving farm machinery are often in operation in closed areas.
- Please only pick ripe fruit! Fruit will not continue to ripen once picked! Picking unripe crops is a waste of both our crop and your money. Flowering crops may not be picked!
- Please pick only what you are prepared to pay for. Prices are clearly displayed at the entrance and our staff are happy to help you work out likely costs etc before you start picking. You will be charged for everything you pick.
- Please treat our fields with respect. Rows of crops are exciting for children to jump over but doing so can damage our crop and affect our livelihood.

Every year we work hard to grow the best quality fruit we can whilst minimising our impact on the environment. We employ highly skilled agronomists who work with us to achieve these aims.
We use an integrated crop management policy which employs natural predators to help with pest control.
Over recent years we have planted extensive new hedgerows to provide natural windbreaks and help encourage local fauna.
