Shrimps are mad about strawberries. Spot the berries all over our Spring
are central in this season’s collection.
Our berry obsession this year coincides perfectly with the British strawberry
season. Have a Shrimpy day out this Bank Holiday and go rummage for
berries in some of Britain’s best kept secrets.
Here are some of the UK’s strawberry picking farms opening up now as
Summer begins. For somewhere close to London, go to Crockford Bridge Farm
in Surrey, the nearest farm to the capital, with a farm shop, fresh ice cream parlour
and garden centre on site. Trevaskis Farm in Cornwall has a reputable farm restaurant
serving hearty fresh farmed foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as a daily deli
market, soon to be picking gooseberries as well as strawbs! For our Scottish
Shrimpettes, check out Fife’s award winning local landmark, Cairnie Fruit Farm
for some strawberry picking and an afternoon in their Tearoom Conservatory or on their
Outdoor Strawberry Conservatory; serving strawberry cakes, tarts, ice creams and smoothies.
