An admission ticket will be required to enter the fields and pre-booking is advisable, as tickets will only be available on the door if we have spare capacity.
Please note, whilst we do our best to judge the amount of fruit we will have available, some factors are outside of our control and as a result all fruit is subject to availability on the day.

Coming soon...Dahlia Beach!
Who will be offering a whole range of gardening and wellbeing workshops from ‘Introduction to growing dahlias’ to ‘Kicking imposter syndrome’ to ‘PYO Flower Experiences’. It’s going to be epic! Opening Friday 6th August.
This year we’ll making a donation from our PYO Sunflowers to RDA, Riding for the Disabled Abingdon Group….A great local charity.
The Abingdon Riding for the Disabled Group was founded in 1975, and the charity dispenses a unique therapy to over 88 children and adults, whose ages range from 2 to 70. They all enjoy the experience of riding, with opportunities to join in social activities, competitions, and even go on National holidays. All of which combine to bring a new dimension to restricted lives, encourage independence, give confidence and generally improve the well-being of each individual. This is all made possible thanks to over 140 volunteers, who regularly give up their time and energy to ensure that the Group provides riding therapy throughout the year. We aim to provide our volunteers with training, friendship and fun and they get as much out of the experience as the riders. The Group caters for many diverse disabilities, including learning difficulties, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy and a variety of syndromes. The centre is a place of great achievement, where new friendships are made, confidence gained and medical conditions are often improved.
Hopefully our PYO Sunflowers will be ready to pick from August 9th! Watch this space for more information!
