We operate a minimum spend system during the Pick Your Own fruit season, this is currently £3 per person (applies to walking age and up). This is payable on entry and redeemable against fruit picked. The availability report, below, is updated every morning, however we have no control over the number of customers visiting during that day and the amount of ripe fruit they pick so the report may not reflect the situation as the day goes on. The early bird catches the worm….
The Pick Of The Crop
Generations of children and their parents have made a visit to West Craigie to pick their own fruit as part of their summer calendar. Many, many loyal customers come back every year to pick their own fruit, to enjoy fresh, fill their freezers and make jam to use over the winter.
How does it work?
It’s easy – we provide you with a basket and direct you to the best field depending on what you would like to pick. You pick your fruit, then weigh it and pay. Simple as that!
What’s available when?
Below is a chart so you can see what’s available and the prices we charge. This is kept up to date so whatever you see you can expect when you arrive at the farm. The fruits marked amber will mean that you may struggle to pick enough fruit to make up your minimum spend, we do not issue refunds in this case.
Picked too much fruit? Homemade jam is easy to make and tastes so much better than supermarket stuff! We’ll happily give you some tips on jam making! Or just freeze your fruit and use it through the winter.
We reserve the right to weigh you after picking fruit!
All of our strawberries are on table tops with the ripe fruit hanging below the grow bags at around 1m from the ground. The middle row in the tunnels can take a compact tractor so are fine for disability scooter and sturdy buggies. Please note that the ground around the farm is rough tracks so may not be suitable for certain types of wheelchair. If you’re in any doubt please ask one of the team and we can advise the best routes down to the tunnels and help you to decide if your wheelchair or buggy will be OK.
