Strawberry Picking- NOW OPEN
PYO Strawberries at Briarlands Farm
The 2020 season for PYO is drawing to a close but we do still have occasional availability, which will mostly be at the weekend. There is no need to book to do strawberry picking but we do recommend you call before travelling a distance to do this specifically.
Briarlands Strawberries are special. Grown in polytunnels on wires which are waist height, they are easy to pick. The advantages of this method are – no aching backs, no slugs or dirty berries and no need for spraying for mould (botrytis). Our strawberries can also be picked whatever the weather – a great advantage here in Scotland!
2020 Prices: £6.95 per Kilogram (£5.95 per kilo for 5Kg or more). You just pay for all you pick!
Planting is carried out over a six week period and this ensures that there is a continual supply of large, juicy, sweet berries throughout the summer months. Strawberries are not only delicious freshly picked but can be used in many ways. Everyone likes strawberry jam but look for our other ideas and recipes online or, when you come to pick, collect our recipe sheet.
Can’t wait until Summer?
Well, we will have our “Grade A” strawberries ready picked and available in the tearoom/shop at Briarlands from the end of May.
We also have a supply of frozen berries available all year round for purchase.
Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamins C and K as well as providing a good dose of fibre, folic acid, manganese and potassium.
They also contain significant amounts of phytonutrients and flavanoids which makes strawberries bright red. They have been used throughout history in a medicinal context to help with digestive ailments, teeth whitening and skin irritations.
Leaves can be eaten raw, cooked or used to make tea.
Fresh Picked Strawberries from Briarlands Farm
Picked daily and fresh as fruit can be!
