Welcome to West Green Fruits
Pick Your Own fruit in Hartley Wintney, Hook, Hampshire, RG27 8LP
WE CLOSE FOR THE 2016 FRUIT PICKING SEASON on SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 10th and RE-OPEN FOR OUR CHRISTMAS BARN AT THE END OF NOVEMBER FOR TREES< WREATHS AND DECORATIONS.
Please see side panel for our opening hours - these change later in the season.
West Green Fruits was established in 1997, and is a family run business of 20 acres set in farmland near Hartley Wintney offering an extensive range of fruit including; Strawberries, Raspberries, Rhubarb, Gooseberries, Tayberries, Tummelberries, Loganberries, Boysenberries, Black & Redcurrants, Blackberries New Potatoes and some Summer vegetables. We also sell Homemade Jams and Ice-Cream made with our produce.
We want you to be able to pick delicious produce in lovely surroundings, as if in a huge garden. If you would rather not pick your self we have ready picked produce for sale, and we can take orders for larger amounts.
We choose fruit varieties for their flavour, and while taste is very personal we believe our taste buds are pretty good at picking out berries which are delicious, and our customers confirm it!
Carolyn's market research runs to buying berries whenever a new variety is spied. Many a discussion has been had round the kitchen table and no doubt will continue to be had!
Some of our varieties are not grown for mass supply for a number of reasons and so will only be found at some PYO outlets or possibly even in gardens.
We constantly look to providing you with the best and so if you have a particular passion let us know. Maybe your choice is something we have missed, so do tell us.
As well as pick-your-own sales we offer ready picked produce at our booth and are happy to take orders and give advice if needed. Just ask!
We can also take orders for fruit outside our own season - just ask and if we can help, we will.
English Asparagus is only in season until late June and we obtain it from friends near Petersfield who have built their business on quality and freshness.
If you're having a party or other event and want a quantity of asparagus before we open for the season do call or e mail and if we can help we will. The asparagus season starts before we do! Depending upon when our season starts (which is entirely driven by the weather and thus crop ripeness) depends upon whether we stock asparagus at our booth. So, if you like asparagus and we have some for sale you need to grab it while you can before it goes out of season.
We sell a good selection of jams and marmalades, which are homemade by Kevin and Sue under the brand 'Jam Packed' with fruit picked at West Green Fruits and the makers' own garden.
The marmalades are made with fruit from foreign parts! The marmalades are quite a speciality and made in all sorts of different flavour combinations.
We now sell 500ml pots of Jella's Homemade Ice-Creams and Sorbets made in a variety of flavours using our berries.
At Christmas we even have Christmas Pudding Ice-Cream!
English Honey is ever rarer but our suppliers' honey is certainly English Honey at its best. We sell honey from local producers and our hope it to sell our own home produced honey made with nectar from the PYO fruit flowers in due course. Bee keeping is still quite a new departure for us and so home produced supplies are limited.
The truly delicious eggs we sell are from happy hens that live in Mattingley, a couple of miles away, on a farm that has been producing delicious Free Range Eggs since long before ethical egg production was considered the right way to do things.
Try some and you'll be converted by their freshness and flavour.
We can also obtain duck eggs occasionally from the same supplier and so if you would like to try some do please ask.
Please visit our Christmas Page for more information as we now sell locally grown Christmas Trees and home-produced Wreaths for you to decorate uniquely yourself or buy ready decorated by us.
We also sell unusual baubles and candles, as well as Jella's amazing Christmas Pudding Ice-Cream and our normal selection of Jams, Marmalades, Chutneys and Honey for those little gifts.
