Pick your own fruit and veg farms in Cornwall

With a patchwork of sprawling countryside across the landscape, Cornwall is known for its homegrown produce. From hearty potatoes that fill Cornish pasties to oh-so-sweet strawberries that promise summer in a single bite, you can’t beat a bit of farm-fresh fare, especially when you’ve picked it yourself!

Oh yes, PYO (pick your own!) activities can be found across the county and offer a fabulously fun day out for the whole family. It’s a great way to teach kids about the joys and benefits of fruit and veg, and you get to fill a basket with the freshest foods imaginable!

Ready to explore the many wonderful pick-your-own fruit and veg farms in Cornwall? Pull on your wellies and dust off your biggest straw hat for a day out unlike any other.

Known far and wide for button-popping Sunday roasts (the pudding display is secretly the eighth wonder of the world), Trevaskis Farm has built a reputation for farm-fresh fare in both the onsite farm shop and restaurant. Trevaskis Farm is also a great family-friendly day out, with the 28-acre farm housing a multitude of animals, from chickens and ducks to goats and pigs, and a jaw-dropping array of fruits and vegetables.

With 20 different varieties available throughout the year, Trevaskis Farm is one of the best places in Cornwall to pick your own fruit and vegetables. From sugar snap peas and sweetcorn to gooseberries, plums, and currants (red, white, and black available), it’s wonderfully easy to fill your basket with a rainbow of homegrown goodies. Entrance to the farm is free, you simply pay for what you pick!

Most of the farm’s produce is picked from June, but you can see what’s in season on their website – make sure to visit in October to pick your very own pumpkin ready for Halloween!

While you can of course pick up your five-a-day from the lovely farm shop, Trevathan Farm also offers the option to pick your own. Strawberries are a firm favourite here, but you can also gather the likes of cucumbers, gooseberries, and more! The fruits and veg on offer change with the seasons, so make sure to give them a call before going to check what’s available.

Situated in the rolling countryside above the pretty village of Port Isaac, Trevathan Farm is a lovely place to enjoy a mix of beautiful views and tasty, homegrown treats. We recommend stopping by the farm shop to fill a picnic basket (and grabbing a delicious Treleavens ice cream – when in Cornwall, after all!) before heading onto the South West Coast Path for a salt-kissed stroll.

With a rugged coastline and a patchwork interior, North Cornwall really does pack a visual punch. It also packs a whole lot of produce into its crisscrossing fields, perfect for PYO enthusiasts. Situated near Newquay, Mitchell Fruit Garden is a lovely local grower and wholesaler that promises plenty of fresh fare across the spring and summer months.

The usual offering includes strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, currants, courgettes, and rhubarb, although gooseberries and currants have quite small picking windows so make sure to check with them before visiting if that’s what you’re after. It’s a beautiful rural spot and the staff are wonderfully welcoming, whether you’re there for some farm-fresh strawberries or some blooming beautiful plants to take home with you.

If you’re looking to go strawberry picking in Cornwall, then a trip to Mevagissey is a must! Boddington’s Berries is home to a spectacular strawberry farm in South Cornwall, with sea views and the fresh coastal air creating the perfect spot to lose yourself in fruit picking for a while. The farm was closed to the public in 2023, but they’re hoping to reopen with PYO days in 2024.

Boddington’s grow some of the best strawberries in the country, with up to 20 acres dedicated to the summertime fruit. Their famous strawberry conserve can be found in many shops around Cornwall as well as on their website, or you can try your hand at making jam yourself with your very own freshly picked berries, perfect for a homemade cream tea!

A lovely local fruit farm and shop, Chyreen Fruit Farm welcomes all, whether you’re looking to pick up some spuds for dinner or some punnets of fresh berries. Alongside their shop, which sells a great selection of fruits, vegetables, jams, and honey, they also offer PYO days during the late spring and summer months (it’s best to call before heading over to make sure they are running). These can vary depending on the fruits in season, but usually include blackcurrants, redcurrants, and gooseberries.

With Truro nearby, why not stock up on fresh goodies before finding a peaceful spot in Victoria Gardens or along the water’s edge for a picnic in Cornwall’s cobbled capital.

Joining the PYO fun, Rose Valley Farm welcomes you to come and pick your own flowers at their beautiful farm in South Cornwall. A small-scale farm with sustainability at its heart, you can choose between an array of stunning, seasonal blooms between June and October.

Nestled just outside the wild and rugged Bodmin Moor, Meaders Farm Lavender promises a calming day out amongst fields awash with purple. In July, you can wander through the rows of vibrant lavender, picking your own bunch of the sweet-smelling flowers as you go.

They offer delicious homemade cakes and cream teas, which can be enjoyed in the lavender fields, and a shop boasts a lovely collection of lavender-scented products. They also offer a series of events throughout the year, from pizza nights to live music, so it’s well worth keeping an eye on their social media to see what’s coming up.
