Wash Farm ProduceWash Farm Produce, whether Pick-Your-Own or Ready-Picked, means fresh, quality produce. Our aim is to provide a positive experience for visitors to our Farm. To this end, varieties are carefully selected for taste and yield. These are then presented in such a way that our customers enjoy the picking experience. For example, Strawberries on no-bend “Table-tops” and Raspberries in rows, neatly tied in. To protect the quality of the crops and enable our customers to pick in the dry should it rain, some of our Strawberries and most of Raspberries are grown under cover.
Approximately April until 21 June.
A very popular player in the Wash Farm Produce team of delicacies. Our Asparagus is cut, processed and sold directly from the Farm daily, as weather/temperatures permit. The processing involves cutting, washing, trimming, grading into the approximate thickness and bundling. All very labour intensive! see more
Wash Farm Strawberries
Our Strawberries, varieties Sonata and Centenary, are chosen for their flavour and yield, both of which are excellent. Unlike commercial growers satisfying supermarket requirements, we do not need to consider shelf life. see more
Raspberries: After many years for experimenting with different varieties, Glen Ample still remains our favourite. Tops in appearance, flavour and yield. see more
Gooseberries: We have green (Invicta), pink (Pax) and red (Hinnomaki Red) which comes later in the season. These are all very sweet and delicious and not sour at all. Wash Farm Gooseberries are planted and trained on wires for easy, reduced-pain picking. see more
Wash Farm Blackcurrants
Blackcurrants are another favourite but underrated member of the Wash Farm Produce team. These delicious little black gems are said to be very high in vitamin C. They are also great for making jams, blackcurrant jelly, and perfect served with that scrumptious Winter Lamb or Venison roast, coulis for deserts and ice creams and the all important cheesecake. see more
Wash Farm Cherries
Cherries: We have a few different varieties in order to stagger the harvest, Sweetheart and Van to name a few. Cherries are always very popular with our customers and we can never grow enough of these delicious little berries. see more
