PICK YOUR OWN
Do I need to book?You don't need to book. Just come along- you can call ahead to check but we are open 10-6 every day of the week during harvest time. Check the weather before coming; fresh blueberries will last up to three weeks in the fridge, but not if they are wet!
What should I bring?-Containers! We do provide punnets if needed, but if you have your own boxes, baskets and buckets, do bring them. Just remember to weight them before picking. -Raincoat/ Suncream: Depending on the good old unpredictable British summer weather! -A sense of adventure. We are remote and wild, but worth the trip and you can feel really at peace among the thousands of bushes and wild flowers.
Are you accessible?As many of you will know, our bumpy track is always quite the adventure. We have done a lot of work over the years to 'smoothe' the lane so it is accessible for all vehicles. At the moment, our fields are sadly not wheelchair accessible unless you have proper 'all terrain' tyres as the hills and long grass make it rather difficult. But you are very welcome to come and have some picked fresh for you while you wait in the sunshine and enjoy the birdsong.
When are you open?Check our website and social media for the most up to date news, as the fruit ripens differently each year, but generally speaking we are open for picking from 1st August, well into September.
WE ARE NOW CLOSED FOR 2023!
Watch our facebook page and site for an announcement for 2024 picking.
Picking your own blueberries is a wonderful experience, and we promise they taste much better straight from the bush! It's a fantastic way to teach children where food really comes from, and they will love exploring the rows of bushes.
Childhood memories in the making... A must read story!
"We're so happy our children are enjoying a perfect long wild summer on Exmoor. Waking up in a tent surrounded by sheep and having some breakfast cooked on the fire. Then all piling into the car to be bumped up a dirt track all laughing and bouncing around in the back before being let loose with buckets on a huge blueberry field. They were free to explore in perfect safety with the only danger being stepping barefoot on a bramble. It was lovely hearing their laughter while surrounded by wild flowers, buzzing bees and butterflies. They came back with full buckets, blueberry juice around their mouths and full of excitement and stories of what they'd seen (like a nest full of eggs and a frog!).
A picnic lunch accompanied by the farm dog before bumping back down the track and heading off for a swim and to try and catch some fish in the shady river. What an idyllic childhood day, just like something out of an Enid Blyton book!"
