Family Fun

PYO Plan WebWhen you visit West Green Fruits we want you to have a happy time.
Booking is not needed - just arrive!

During your visit we ask that parents and guardians please supervise their children at all times in the interests of safety, especially in the car park, but also in the fruit fields and surrounding paths and tracks that are open to our visitors.

Please remember that West Green Fruits operates on private property and as such we ask that you respect it and our staff at all times.

Please stay within the permitted areas for your safety.

West Green Fruits sits within a working farm and produces high quality summer fruits for you to pick and enjoy. We do not offer other facilities and there are no loos on site so do make sure you and your children are 'comfortable' before you arrive.

 

PYO ETIQUETTE - 'Pick, Pay, Eat'

The rules of Pick Your Own are very simple.

We apologise to those customers and visitors who do not need any explanation,

BUT to avoid any misunderstanding:

  • All visitors and customers must understand that West Green Fruits is a business
  • 'Pick Your Own' means 'Pick and Pay for all you pick before Eating'.
  • Our business still operates on honesty meaning that everything you and your group pick (whatever your ages) must be paid for before any is eaten.
  • Please only pick what you are prepared to pay for. Prices are clearly stated and staff will advise you on likely costs before you pick, if asked.
  • It is not acceptable to change your mind if you pick too much.
  • Please supervise children and teach them not to jump or trample over or through crops - it causes damage.
  • Eating fruit whilst picking or before paying is theft and unacceptable.
  • We reserve the right to restrict entry or ask visitors to leave


HOW PYO WORKS at WEST GREEN FRUITS:

  • Empty punnets are available at the entrance for you to pick into.
  • If you bring your own containers please have them weighed on arrival before you pick.
  • Most fruit and vegetables are sold by weight.
  • Please read the above PYO Etiquette points to be observed whilst picking.
  • When you have finished picking bring everything you have picked to our shop where there is also a selection of summer vegetables, jams, honey, eggs etc
  • Your fruit and vegetables will be weighed and charged accordingly along with any other produce you chose.
  • Please keep your till receipt whilst you are on site for any checks we are making.

  

FARM VEHICLES

Apart from vehicles visiting West Green Fruits agricultural farm vehicles also pass through or work in the surrounding fields. 

Tractors and machinery are exciting to many of our visitors but do need to be given respect and space.

However, do ask if you would like a peek inside a tractor or the combine harvester etc - if its possible the drivers can be asked to stop, but please do not be disappointed if they can't that day and please do not flag them down yourself. Just ask one of us in the shop.

 

PICNICS 

For the 2021 season there may still be a requirement for social distancing and thus we may still need to have 'rules' regarding pic-nicing through the summer. Please check.

We apologise for any disappointment but feel sure you understand the importance of keeping our customers and staff safe while at West Green Fruits.

 

DOGS AND BBQs

As a family we love our dogs, but we cannot allow dogs anywhere on site (other than assistance dogs) at any time and BBQs are also never permitted.

These two issues are not of our own making, but for safety and insurance reasons and also, dogs are not everyone's cup of tea!
Please speak to a member of staff if you need to park so that we can watch your dog as you will need to leave your windows open.

 

CHARITY DONATIONS

Historically we have always had our charity tins by the tills for donations and loose change to be given to our chosen charities.

The donations are given to our charities along with any carrier bag charges also added - it is surprising how the pennies have added up over the years.
In 2020 donations totalled £750 for Claire Danson.

As our sales are now  predominently contactless / card payments this means that change is becoming a thing of the past and reduces donations to our charity tins, and all other charities.
Thus, we now ask customers if they would like to make donations by card, added to their bills. Please do not feel embarrassed to say no!

For this year our collections are to go to The Matthew Elvidge trust, which works to destigmatise and help with depression and anxiety in the young.

Thus, we will be asking our customers to consider making donations via their card payments, which will be kept separately and then passed to the trust. 

We hope you will not mind being asked about this and please do not be offended or feel embarassed to decline. However, if you feel able to help support The Matthew Elvidge Trust it will be gratefully appreciated.
We will have information in the shop too.

We hope that in the future we will be able to continue collecting for our usual charities in this way.

We hope that you will enjoy visiting us through the summer and if you have any ideas or suggestions that you think would make your visit even more enjoyable do share them with us.
