Summer fruits on sale at Linby’s Brook Farm

Brooke Farm is offering ‘Pick your own’ raspberries and gooseberries

Locally-grown summer fruits are now available to pick or buy in a box from a farm in Linby.

Brooke Farm is offering ‘Pick your own’ raspberries at £2.90 a punnet and £3.70 boxed and gooseberries are £2.90 per punnet to pick or £3.75 boxed.

Blackberries will be available from the farm in the coming weeks.

Strawberries are no longer available due to the recent hot weather as the farm has seen an increase in people picking the fruit compared to previous cooler years.

The farm is run by Nottinghamshire County Council and employs staff with mixed abilities and offers training to people with disabilities.

Also on offer is a self-service café and seating area for refreshments for visitors.

Councillor Stuart Wallace, Chair of Nottinghamshire Council’s Adult Social Care and Public Health Committee, said: “Our summer fruits always go down a storm and you can’t beat the taste of just picked fruits on a sunny day. The gooseberries are particularly tasty and all of the fruit available is great for baking as well as eating fresh.”

Brooke Farm is a commercial enterprise growing vegetables and plants for sale to the general public.

The farm shop offers a range of home-grown produce for sale including, free range eggs, seasonal vegetables, salad and fruit, flowers and plants along with locally-sourced products such as bread, milk, preserves, pickles, cakes and biscuits.
