Picking Today at Shute Fruit and Produce

Sunday 18 August

Redcurrants:† Easy picking and prolific.† Great for decorating cakes and desserts.

Blackberries: Big and sweet from all the rain

Raspberries: Tasty but plenty of prickles and nettles, so not for suitable for children or those without boots

Runner bean:†† just starting so only a small quantity will be available from the stall today

Calendula and Nasturtiums:† edible flowers for garnishing salads or dressing up ice cubes

Broad Beans: Green Windsor variety (just a small area)

Beetroot:† three colours, same earthy sweetness. Temper the sweetness with a bit of horseradish in your salad dressing.

†Rainbow chard:† two veg in one.† Pretty enough for a photo.† Use the leaves as greens in a vase before you eat them!

Courgettes:† in rainbow colours.† Grate one into a sauce to up your five a day†

Charlotte variety potatoes: David made fried potatoes with the left over boiled potatoes for supper last night†

Sunflowers and Sweet Peas for your vases.††

Sorry, but we do not have strawberries this season.

Loriís award winning jams, jellies, chutneys, pickles and elderflower cordial are always available

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 farmersí markets, listed on the events page.† If you would like to order any preserves

please ring 01626 777570 or email to discuss details.


If you wish to place an order please email us at or phone (01626) 777570

Our hand wrapped baskets of preserves are made to order and make delicious presents for all occasions.
