PYO strawberries starts earlier than ever
Pick your own strawberries arrived on May 11
The ever-popular strawberry PYO season has started at Sharnfold Farm & Shop in Stone Cross, Eastbourne.
Owner Dennis Hilsdon said “This is the earliest that we have ever had strawberries ready for picking and we have been growing them since 1985!”
The farm has 9 different varieties of strawberries growing this year, which will vary in ripening times and flavour.
Dennis added “On certain days this year we are introducing table-top strawberry picking for those that prefer not to be crouching down in the fields. This should start in the second week of July. Plus we will be selling our own strawberries in the Farm Shop along with our vegetables, meat and lots of other great local products.”
Sharnfold has over 100,000 strawberry plants in its crop each year.

“Sharnfold is great if you have children. We really enjoy doing PYO, plus it is free to visit the farm animals and use the play area if you buy a drink or snack in the coffee shop!“
