We are picking pumpkins!!

Welcome to Sopley Farm

New Forest, Logo 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. 

Facilities & Rules

* As we do not charge an entrance fee onto the farm, all produce must be paid for before eating.                                * All produce picked must be paid for so please only pick what you want to pay for.                                                            As we are a working farm, all children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.                                      * Please follow any rules and signs you see on the farm.        * We reserve the right to refuse entry and/or remove people from the farm.

Photographs in the Sunflowers

We are very happy for people to photograph themselves in our sunflower patches but do ask that as our business is as a pick your own and not as a free recreation site, we'd be very grateful if you would spend some money with us! For those photographers wanting to use the sunflowers for client photoshoots, we charge £100 +vat and do not close the patches off to the public but do not limit you to time on the day. Please email us to let us now when you intend to come.

From our Farm Shop

You will also find in our Farm Shop ice creams, cheese, fresh free range eggs and local Dorset Honey along with seasonal salad and vegetable produce of which we don’t grow ourselves, but are still grown locally. These include carrots, beetroot, cauliflower, cabbage, tomatoes, cucumbers and several varieties of lettuce.
