The shine of the summer sun and the smell of fresh Strawberries means it is time for our Berries, Brews & BBQs festival! The most fun that you’ll have on a farm!

As if that was not enough to inspire a trip to the farm, visitors will get to taste some incredible BBQ cooked over an open pit and smoked overnight by our very own farm cooks.
