COVID-19 statement for 2022 PYO Season

West Green Fruits will continue to operate in a way that will look after our staff, ourselves and of course all of our customers and visitors as coronavirus continues to circulate. 

There is no need to pre-book to visit, but we cannot take coaches or mini-bus parties without explicit prior agreement.
We will turn away coaches ad mini-bus parties that have not pre-booked.

To this end:

  • Please keep together in your group during your visit,
  • Please respect other people's space while you are with us
  • Please pay by card if at all possible (we do not accept American Express)
  • Please enter our shop once there is a free till and
    collect any produce from the veg/fruit display on your way
    In this way everyone can be comfortable within the shop
  • Our jams, honey, free range eggs, ice-cream and cream are served from behind the tills where there is a clear display for you to see and choose from (very old fashioned!) - just ask for what you would like to buy
  • You may pic-nic on the grassed area beside the shop, and not anywhere else on site.
    If you need to sit and rest, please do so near the shop and not in the fields so that we don't have to come and ask you to move.

 Please note: there are no lavatories on site

  • Empty punnets are available at the entrance for you to pick into (see below)
  • 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 PYO Etiquette points below for your visit

We supply recycleable baskets but ask that you avoid wasting them and just take what you need for the quantity you wish to pick,
We use recyclable and re-useable containers.
We cannot re-use dirty baskets that are discarded and so please only take what you need.
There is a charge for the large cardboard baskets.if less than 2kg of fruit is picked

You are very welcome to bring your own containers if you prefer, just get them weighed at the meet and greet point before you go picking so that we can deduct their weight when you return to pay.

PYO ETIQUETTE - 'Pick, Pay, Eat'

It is unfortunate that we need to state that when visiting West Green Fruits all fruit picked must be paid for before being eaten.

THUS, 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

DOGS

Dogs are not allowed on site other than in a vehicle, where they must stay.

The only exception is for assistance dogs such as a guide dog or hearing dog.

Other Summer Produce:

Jude's Ice-cream

Since 2018 we have stocked Jude's Ice-Cream and their Mango Sorbet for those who have dairy and gluten free needs in single portion sized pots. 
We also stock their vegan salted caramel and vanilla flavours.
If you're having a party we can obtain a wide selection of flavours in larger, or even 4litre, sizes.

Jams and Marmalades

Made especially for us under our own label.

Marmalades are made with fruit from foreign parts but the jams are predominently from our own fruit, picked by us. 
The marmalades are quite a speciality and our range includes more than just Seville Orange Marmalade.

Jam Sugar and jars are available to buy for your own brewing!

Channel Island Cream Jersey Cream from Ivy House Farm.
Nearly as thick as clotted cream and, in our opinion, even nicer!

Local Honey

English Honey is ever rarer but our supplier's honey is certainly English Honey at its very best. 
Our honey is from local producers and one day we may even have our own home produced honey made with nectar from the PYO fruit flowers in due course.
Bee keeping remains in its infancy here. Our bees are more like well  looked after pets than productive members of our little ecosystem!!

Free Range Eggs

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 wonderful Free Range Eggs since long before ethical egg production was considered the right way to do things. When they are unable to supply their own they work in conjunction with another producer of their own ilk and so you can be sure that the eggs we sell are good in every sense.
Try some and you'll be converted by their freshness and flavour.
When these are unavailable we hvae eggs from an equally ethical free range egg farm at Wokingham.

Summer Vegtables 

A selection of ready picked summer vegtables are always available, including ever popular new potatoes.
if there is anything specific you would like us to obtain for you please ask.
We no longer grow any vegetables on site, but they come from market daily and wherever possible our produce is British.

CHARITY DONATIONS


Every year our customers have generously supported our chosen charity.

With the reduction in cash useage we now take donations by card via a dedicated till button.
Thus, we now ask customers if they would like to make donations added to their card payments. Any donations will be accounted for on the till and then passed to our chosen cause.

This year, we will be passing your donations to THE MATTHEW ELVIDGE TRUST once again, which works to destigmatise depression amongst the young and help those in need via carefully chosen organisations within and outside of the world of education.
