Here at Sopley Farm on the edge of The New Forest, we grow nearly 20 different fruit and vegetables. Some are grown for Pick Your Own, and some for selling ready picked through our farm shop and at Farmers Markets across the South of England.
We pride ourselves in producing good quality produce to people across Hampshire and Dorset, which is “as fresh as it gets”! And as we select varieties for their flavour and not shelf life, they really do taste good.
So come on down to the Farm and Pick Your Own tasty fruit and vegetables. You can find us on the Sopley to Bransgore Road. It really is a great day out and both fun and educational for the children. We do not charge an entrance fee, you just pay for what you pick and we do accept card payments.
The following are available for pick your own when in season:
Strawberries, Raspberries, Blackberries, Tayberries, Gooseberries, Blackcurrants, Redcurrants, Plums, Runner Beans, Broad Beans and Pumpkins.
