PICK YOUR OWN STRAWBERRIES
2020 PYO Update
We are pleased to announce, after careful consideration and planning, we will be opening our Pick Your Own for Strawberries on Saturday 23rd May. However, this will be a season like none we have ever seen before and we ask that you read the information below carefully before visiting.
We want our customers to have access to the most delicious, Millets own fruit at its freshest and this year the Pick Your Own is open only to give you access to this fruit, not as a leisure activity.
We have implemented the following new procedure and rules to ensure both you and our team are kept as safe as possible while in the fields.
Customers wanting to pick fruit will be asked to pre-purchase admission tickets online for a chosen time slot. This will allow us to control the number of people in the fields at any one time. Groups of up to 2 people from the same household will be able to enter the fields to ensure social distancing is achievable. Admission will be £1.50 per person (non-refundable against fruit picked or if you miss your time slot). For our regular customers, please be aware that for the 2020 season, in order for us to operate the PYO the previous deposit scheme no longer applies.
In addition to buying your admission tickets you will also be asked to pre-purchase the amount of fruit you plan to pick to avoid unnecessary contact with taking payments. The bigger the container the better the price/kg! You will be given the correct number and size of containers as you enter the fields for the amount of fruit you have pre-paid for.
All customers will be asked to wash their hands before entering the fields.
IN THE FIELD:
We will have a one-way system to get to the fruit tunnels and you will be allocated a tunnel to pick from during your session. You must pick from this tunnel only.
Wardens will be on hand to help make sure people know where to go for their picking.
All customers are asked to respect social distancing rules and stay at least 2 metres away from other pickers and our team members at all times.
Each picking session will last 1 hour but once you have filled your containers you are free to leave the fields by following the one-way system.
The hand wash station will be available to you to wash your hands before getting back into your car.
We strongly advice that no fruit is eaten until you have been able to wash it at home.
