At the weekend, I took the girls to one of Bunnys favourite places. It’s called Primrose Vale and it’s a PICK YOUR OWN farm.
I first took Bunny when she was about three years old. We went Strawberry picking. Now it’s one if those places we go every summer. It’s lovely on a hot day and it encourages us to eat fruit. The twins LOVE strawberries too.
I also think that fruit picking is a nice tradition to pick up. I have fond memories of fruit picking with my gran when I was a little girl.
There are loads of different fruits and veg you can pick, but I’m too ignorant about fruit and veg to know when anything else is ripe! There’s something delectably summery about strawberries anyway.
They also have a fantastic farm shop a café and a play park… More reasons why Bunny loves it. We came home this weekend with 2kg of strawberries… I guess we got a little carried away!

I do love strawberry picking, a perfect summer’s day treat for all the family. Primrose Vale is great as you also have the cafe and play area, thanks for sharing your lovely sunny photos with Country Kids.

We love PYO but don’t go nearly as often as we should

I’ve yet to take the kids to a pick your own farm so this looks like a great place to go with their granddad during the Summer holidays..

We used to go fruit picking. Always picked too much and ended up making jam!
