What better way to get your little ones, and bigger ones, eating the rainbow than taking them out to pick their own. And now’s the perfect time to hit the fields. Copas Farm in Cookham has long been a favourite of ours offering fresh yumminess in the form of strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants, peas, spinach, beetroot and more. Pull on your wellies and get out in the fresh air, they’re much more likely to eat what’s on their plate if they’ve helped pick it.
The farm offers a wide range of seasonal fruit and veg, you can even call their hotline before you head off for confirmation of what’s currently ready for picking (01628 529511).
The set up is easy at a Pick Your Own. You pick, you weigh, you pay. You’ll be charged £3 per person on entry, but this will then be refunded off the produce that you pick and buy.
