Best Places to go Strawberry Picking Yorkshire – 2019

Strawberry Picking Yorkshire 2019 – one of the highlights of our summer is going to pick strawberries.  Strawberry picking starts mid/late June around here.  There is something so delightful about it and the kids love doing it (just don’t let them pick too many unless you want a second mortgage!). We love to then eat them in the car on the way home when they are still warm from the sun – delicious!  So, if you are looking for strawberry farms near you, here is a great list!  Or look for other family days out in Yorkshire.

Strawberry Picking York

Balloon Tree, York, North Yorkshire

This is one of the closest places to strawberry pick near York. They sell other produce too, have a fabulous farm shop, excellent cafe and a children’s play area.  They do an excellent breakfast and excellent cake – depending on when you plan to visit, so if you are clever, plan to visit when you can handily fit a meal in too!

 

Woodside Farm, York

If you are looking for strawberry picking near York then this is another good one.  From their website: “Here at Woodside Farm we offer a back to nature experience for young and old, as well as the opportunity to taste that fresh from the fields sensation. The farm is not a large, intensive operation supplying the supermarkets, but a small family run farm selling direct to the public and offering good old fashioned personal service.”

Strawberry Picking Leeds

Kemps Farm, Leeds

Kemps Farm is in Horsforth so good for Leeds and strawberry picking near Bradford.  From their website “We keep things simple growing the strawberries in the ground, rather than in raised beds.  We find that not only do the strawberries taste better this way, but think it is more fun for the kids to pick them like this, as they can rummage amongst the leaves trying to find the biggest sweetest strawberry.”  I love that – like a strawberry treasure trail!

He was so profoundly affected by his experience that he decided to create somewhere in the countryside where inner-city children and those from challenging backgrounds could learn and grow.”
