Pick Your Own Fruit
Craigies Farm welcomes thousands of visitors in summer and autumn who come to enjoy our ‘Pick Your Own’ experiences!
In summertime children and parents love come to pick fresh strawberries, raspberries, cherries, currants, blackcurrants and gooseberries at Craigies to enjoy at home, to stock up their freezers or to make jam for the winter months.
In autumn, we welcome our ‘pumpkin pickers’ who come to the farm for the best pumpkins for carving and eating over Hallowe’en… and from early September to late October you can pick fresh apples from our orchard. It is the only commercial apple orchard in Scotland, featuring varieties you won’t find in any supermarket!
Simply buy an entry voucher online ahead of your visit to gain entry to the field. You can check out our availability report below to see what’s available prior to your visit.
On arrival, show your entry voucher in exchange for a basket and a mapLINK and we will guide you to the best field depending on what you would like to pick. All you have to do is pick your own fruit, fill your basket then weigh and pay!
Entry to the field is from a pre-purchased voucher (£5 per Adult and £2.50 per child) which is redeemable against the fruit picked. We do not offer refunds where the fruit picked comes in under the cost of the voucher.
