Carolyn's Jam


We rotate the charities who benefit from a share of our summer sin bins each year and these charities are:






Claire worked for us as a student for a number of summers. She was hugely popular with her colleagues and customers and is a family friend.
In 2019 Claire suffered horrific injuries in a road cycling accident and as a result severed heer spinal cord at T7 and so is now paralysed from her belly button down. She is inspirational in her determination. Having been a world class athlete, becoming European Triathlete Champion shortly before her accident, she remains a formidable athlete with high ambitions to reach the paralympics. Her grit and determination are somwthing to behold.

Our collection in 2020 was for Claire for a training aid to use on her bike at home so that she can challenge herself, ride with her old team mates etc. We were delighted to be able to give her £750 to this end, thanks to you, our customers.
She continues with her tutoring of young students and is living a full life despite her limitations.

You can follow Claire on her facebook story and also on instagram at @cdanson10 


We do not advertise for anyone but do, from time to time, list people who may be of interest to our customers. 
Those listed are local people / organisations that we have direct knowledge of and who we are happy to support in this way.
In these pandemic times, where life has been very difficult for so many, the following listing will hopefully be of help to them and some of our customers.


A warm welcome awaits you at this family run small hotel. 
They do wonderful take away pizzas (07706 997714) and also pizza picnics in their grounds when the weather and Covid rules permit.
New for the year is The Dunched - you've heard of Brunch - well, this is the lunch / dinner equivalent. Its brilliant!
They cater for private parties, functions and weddings of all sizes in their beautiful hotel and permanent marquee.
Visit or call 01256 760232

Hook House also has an inhouse artist, Moira Stewart, who is not only talented and paints wonderful wildlife and countryside paintings but also does fantastic pet portraits. 
Her paintings are displayed in the public rooms at Hook House and are just gorgeous.


Sophie lives near Odiham and designs and makes the most beautiful and unique wedding dresses.
You may even have seen her window in Odiham.
Our daughter Georgie looked stunning in hers and as a girl who is very tall it was a joy to find a dress that fitted her proportions exactly.
Sophie will adapt any design just for you and her prices are very reasonable in the scheme of wedding dresses. 
The whole experience was one of happiness and calm.

FRIDAY 26th August 2022 - this year's PYO season finishes today
Thank you for you custom this year and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Our Christmas Barn opens on November 22nd for locally grown trees, decorated and undecorated wreaths and beautiful decorations.
There is a link at the top of this website that will take you to our Christmas site or else will take you there.

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.

Please note: there are no lavatories on site other than a porta loo.


  • 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.
  • Once picked please bring all your fruit to our shop for weighing and pricing
  • 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.
  • DOGS are not allowed on site except for registered assistance dogs

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 please remember:

  • West Green Fruits is a business, not a charity or play ground
  • 'Pick Your Own' means 'Pick, Weigh and Pay for all you pick before Eating'.
  • EVERYTHING you and your group pick (whatever your ages) must be paid for before any is eaten.
  • 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.
  • Supervise children and teach them not to jump or trample over or through crops - it causes damage.
  • Behaviour that is disrespectful to other customers or ourselves is not acceptable, including wasting fruit
  • Eating fruit whilst picking or before paying is theft
  • We reserve the right to restrict entry or ask visitors to leave


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 per basket

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. 


Orders can be taken for your convenience, and espcially for large quantities.
To place orders for collection please call 07954730143 during open times.
Where possible please place orders 24hrs in advance, especially for busy times such as weekends, but still always ask.
A dedicated collection point will be used for orders, and for those with vulnerabilities we can bring your order to the car by pre-arrangement.

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.


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.

2022Christmas Barn

We will have beautiful fresh cut locally grown Christmas Trees and home-produced Wreaths and Garlands again for you to decorate uniquely yourself or buy ready decorated by us or decorated to order. 
We also sell unusual baubles, candles and our normal selection of Jams, Marmalades, Chutneys and Honey for those 'little gifts'.

Our Christmas Barn opens in late November.
The CHristmas Barn operates SEVEN days a week once open until either 22nd December or until we sell out of trees.

We can take orders for any size of tree and deliver for you (for which there may be a small fee).
Follow the link on this site to our Christmas Barn website.


We enjoy visits from a variety of groups / organisations, of all age groups, each year during the fruit season within opening hours but these must be arranged in advance.

We can cater for visits from organisations such as nursery schools and beavers, brownies etc as well as informative visits for clubs and organisations wishing to learn a little about what we do, both with the Pick Your Own and also the farm in general.

However, we will not accomodate coaches or mini buses without explicit prior arrangement. There are no exceptions to this situation and buses and mini-buses without prior arrangements in place will be turned away.

Please contact Carolyn either by email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone: 07954 730143 (during shop hours) to discuss you needs.

For most such visits we do not make a charge but all fruit picked must be paid for.
Additionally, depending upon the nature of your visit we may ask for a donation for our chosen charities for the year.


Sponsorship and Donations

Every year we are asked to donate fruit or sponsor different events.

We are delighted to be able to support local organisations and charities but we have to limit the level of annual donations we are able to make, and do not promote other businesses except of our own choosing.

Please feel free to contact us regarding sponsorship and donations but with the understanding that we may not be able to help you at that particular time.

One form of 'sponsorship' that we are very keen to encourage is that asked for by our younger customers who make jams etc to sell to raise funds for local schools and charities.



The people and organisations we 'LINK' with are local and chosen only by us and not by request.
We do not list corporate organisations. 
We hope you understand.
