Hewitts farm was a regular day out with my grandparents when I was a little girl. I still have really fond memories of strawberry picking in the sun. The farm still operates a ‘pick your own’ service and is still very popular. I often meet here with a group of mums and the kids love it, its such a simple thing but they really do enjoy it. I have also found it a really good way to get my kids to try different veg, apparently they taste much nicer when they pick them themselves!! There is a really good selection of fruit and veg ranging from runner beans, cabbages, pumpkin and squash to strawberries, blackberries and gooseberries, the list goes on. There is no café but they do sell hot and cold drinks and ice creams. There is a football pitch that you are welcome to use for a picnic if the weather is good. The owner’s recommend that you phone before coming to the farm to check availability and to let you know the selection of fruit and veg ready to pick.
