Where to pick your own fruit and vegetables in Warwickshire
A firm childhood favourite of mine is picking our own strawberries and of course munching a few on the way round! There seem to be less places providing a pick your own place for families so I thought I’d put the ones we’ve found into a guide for you all.
If you’re looking for some more canvas-worthy photos we also have information on lavender fields and the famous confetti fields, but you’ll have to be quick as they only open for a short while.
