We have been growing raspberries on site for over 30 years. The current variety is Glen Ample. This is a widely grown established variety, due to its large size, good flavour and excellent shelf life.
We now grow them under polytunnels, which improves quality, reduces the need for chemical sprays and means the weather now rarely disrupts our picking.
Raspberries are normally available for the month of July.
During the picking season we freeze sufficient raspberries to sell throughout the year. These are available from the freezer unit within the farm stall.
Raspberries are easy to home freeze and we receive numerous orders, therefore we advise that it is best to get you freezer orders in early, as the early crop is always best for freezing.
Raspberries are always sold in 1/2 lb (227g) punnets. These are priced at £2.00 per punnet.
Trays of 8 punnets (4lb) or 18 punnets (9lb) are available in season and are normally sold at a discounted rate.
Out of the fresh season, ready frozen fruit is available, priced at £1.50 per punnet.
