Strawberry Picking at Chosen Hill Farm

















This post is my childhood in a nutshell and more. 
I remember being quite young when I first went strawberry picking with my Dad, Nan and Granddad. It was something we would do as a little family every year, at the same place, Chosen Hill Farm. A cute little family run farm just next to Chew Valley Lake, it hasn't changed since the first time I visited.

My friend Mac and me took it upon ourselves to pick our own Strawberries this afternoon, it was so lovely. Picking your own fruit is something of a rarity nowadays, pick your own farms are very few and far between now which is pretty sad, theres nothing like picking your own fruit to take home for tea. It was so nice seeing so many elderly individuals and couples out picking their own fruit, how sweet is the photo I took of the man we saw picking his? Honestly melts my heart. 

I think we did quite well considering I'm now 8 months pregnant, I mean we didn't do that much bending because at Chosen Hill they grow the majority of their strawberries on tables which is handy for me- I'm currently struggling to move let alone bend! Although if you do prefer the old-fashioned way, they do still have ground strawberries, which were actually in better condition surprisingly!

I had such a lovely afternoon, on the hottest day of the year so far.
