One of our most popular questions at this time of year is:
Do you know where you can pick your own strawberries locally?
Our parents recommend these great local places to pick your own.
Lillingstone Pick Your Own – https://www.facebook.com/LillingstonePickYourOwn/
Welcome to our family run farm, nestled in the stunning countryside of Buckinghamshire.
In 2018 my wife, Faye, and I decided to open the farm gates to the public for seasonal pick-your-own adventures and events. I’m a first-generation farmer growing a variety of combinable crops for cereals and animal feed, along with rearing cattle and sheep. Faye is a primary school teacher in Milton Keynes, a country girl and a wonderful mother.
Our events are inspired by both of our passions: farming and education. As parents ourselves, we realise that time spent outside in the fresh air and enjoying the simple things in life, can bring great enjoyment to all. We love seeing others enjoy making memories on the farm which will last a lifetime!

2.Grove Farm Pick Your Own – https://www.facebook.com/Grove-Farm-Pick-Your-Own
Grove Farm Pick Your Own started in 1981 when Brussel Sprouts that were grown for wholesale could not be harvested and were offered to the public to pick themselves. Each year it grew as new fruits and vegetables were added by demand.
The PYO now covers approximately 80 acres with over 30 different fruits and vegetables from June through to October. Our Pick Your Own enables you to select your produce fresh from the field, in season, at it’s best!
The farm is situated on the outskirts of Ivinghoe Village within the Chiltern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is beautiful open countryside that is easily accessible from Aylesbury, Luton, Milton Keynes and London.
A visit is a wonderful day out for children. It is a big, safe site away from general traffic in the fresh country environment. Also it is educational for children to help you pick and see how different crops grow, it might even encourage some to eat more “greens”!
