Strawberry season offers rich pickings
8:30am Wednesday 21st May 2014 in News
FARMERS are hoping for a fruitful summer as strawberry season arrives.
The Pick Your Own at Millets Farm in Frilford is to open on Saturday and the juiciest strawberries will be ready to pick in about two weeks.
The farm’s events assistant Kirsty Ebsworth said the strawberries were doing well due to the recent mix of heavy rain and strong sun.
She said: “Our strawberries this year have benefitted from the great British rain we’ve had in March and April, followed by the hot weather this month.
“This means that the fruit is much sweeter and full of flavour and we’ll also have more strawberries for a longer period of time – well into September we expect.”
The Pick Your Own will be open every day from 9am with the last entry at 5pm. The strawberries will cost £4.30 for every kilogram picked.
