Picking Today at Shute Fruit and Produce

Tuesday, September 18

Luscious dessert blackberries: hurry, they are getting harder to find, but very sweet and full of juice. 

Plenty of redcurrants:  the jewels of the fruit world;  Use them instead of dried cranberries in your recipes. 

Courgettes:  yellow, stripped and green varieties as well as our new Italian round ones—Try them raw in salads.

Runner Beans: available ready picked at the stall only, PYO to start soon

Sloes: for sloe gin, mainly, but they make a mean jelly too

Rainbow chard:  beautiful leafy greens with colourful stems, great eating instead of spinach

New Potatoes: Charlotte variety, with a waxy texture.  Lightly boil, then roast with a drop of olive oil and rosemary sprigs.  Yum.

Marrows and Custard marrows:  Custard marrows make perfect space ships to encourage healthy eating among those alien to vegetables.

Harlequin Squashes: the first of our squashes, very sweet and very decorative stored in the fruit bowl!

Sunflowers: Just a few starting today, more to follow later

Sweet Peas: delicate and fragrant!

Lori’s award winning jams, jellies, chutneys, pickles and elderflower cordial are always available

We try to have small amounts ready picked on the stall for those in a hurry or not wanting to pick, but for large amounts we ask for orders in advance, please.

To help us keep plastic use to the minimum we would love it if you could bring your own containers.  We will weigh them empty, you go pick, then we will weigh them again and subtract the weight of your container so you only pay for what you pick.

The Pick Your Own is a working farm and for your own health and safety we suggest you wear sturdy footwear whilst picking.  Well behaved dogs are welcome, but not amongst the fruit and vegetables.  We also ask you to keep away from farm machinery and tools.

Find us at shows and farmers’ markets, listed on the events page.  If you would like to order any preserves
