We operate a min spend system during the PYO fruit season, payable on entry and redeemable against fruit picked.

The Pick Of The Crop

Generations of kids and their parents have made a visit to West Craigie to pick their own fruit as part of their summer calendar.

Many, many loyal customers come back every year to pick their own fruit, to enjoy fresh, fill their freezers and make jam to use over the winter.

How does it work? It’s easy; we provide you with a basket and direct you to the best field. You pick your fruit, then weigh it and pay. Simple as that!

When’s the fruit in season? It depends on the weather, but generally PYO strawberries start at the end of June and go on into August. Raspberries start mid July till mid August. We also have gooseberries, blackcurrants, redcurrants, Victoria plums, and big, beautiful sunflowers. See below for details (less fruit highlighted = less fruit, more highlighted = more fruit, no fruit highlighted = no fruit!).

Register for our ‘e-newsletters’ and we’ll keep you up to date with what’s available when.

Why not plan to make a day of your visit? Do our Nature Detective Trail, have lunch in our café and then pick your own fruit

Picked too much fruit? Homemade jam is easy to make and tastes so much better than supermarket stuff! We’ll happily give you some tips on jam making! Or just freeze your fruit and use it through the winter.

Keep an eye on the fruit news page to keep up to date with what’s coming up and when it’s ready.

We reserve the right to weigh you after picking fruit!

Raspberries (Glen Ample and Cascade Delight), strawberries (Sonata and Centenary), blackcurrants (Ben Conan), gooseberries (Invicta and Pax) and broad beans are all in season at the moment. All are plentiful and easy to pick so if you plan to fill your freezer now is a good time! The cherries are still available but the juicy black ones are a bit harder to find, lots more to come they just need a bit of time. We operate a minimum spend of £3 per person (applies to walking age up) which is payable on entry to the PYO fields and can be redeemed against any fruit picked but is not refundable. This crop report was as off 9am on the date above, it does not reflect how busy we may have been since, we have no control over customer numbers.
