Pick Your Own in Little Kineton
Today we went to ‘Pick Your Own’ in Little Kineton. What an amazing place! What we assumed would be a field with rows of strawberries and a little shack, perhaps, where we could buy trays to put our strawberries in, was something entirely different, something quite fabulous, in fact!
A lovely nursery and shop
The ‘Pick Your Own’ site is a part of Little Kineton Plant Centre, a lovely nursery of beautiful plants and flowers available at very reasonable prices. We arrived and walked through the plant centre where we were greeted by very friendly staff. From there we went through to the little shop next to the fields. The shop is where you take the baskets and trays for the fruit you pick, but also where you can buy ice cream, cold drinks, produce like honey and pre-picked asparagus, and where you come back to have your fruit weighed.
The sweetest experience
We acquired each a plastic basket and off we went to pick fruit while marvelling at how absolutely wonderful it was to get up close and personal with rows and rows of strawberry plants, raspberry, redcurrant and gooseberry bushes, and many more. This is not something our kids see every day, that’s for sure, and their marvelling at how great it was and them getting stuck in straight away, made the whole thing even sweeter.
Pick Your Own picnic too!
We leave with 3 baskets of the sweetest, juiciest strawberries, ready to be snacked on and put on top of this afternoon’s chocolate birthday cake for a very special little girl. We also leave excited to come back again on another sunny day and this time we will be sure to bring a blanket and a picnic basket too. What a lovely gem we found today, and only a 15-minute drive from Stratford-upon-Avon, perfect!
