Pick Your Own at The Balloon Tree
Event Start Date: 08/07/2020
Event End Date: 12/07/2020
Welcome to The Balloon Tree’s Pick Your Own
Current Picking Availability is as follows:
*We are currently between crops of strawberries. There are some available in our outside plot, it may be slow picking.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, we have made some changes to how we run our Pick Your Own Season. This year, to ensure the safety of visitors and the farm team, all pickers will need to purchase a PYO voucher before coming to site.
Each voucher will be linked to a time slot which must be presented upon arrival. This will allow us to monitor and manage the number of people on site at any one time, and be confident that it is possible to easily distance from picker to picker.
The cost of the pre-booked voucher will then be redeemable against the cost of any fruit you pick.
For example, should you buy two vouchers (£3.00 x 2) and pick £10 worth of fruit, the value of the vouchers will be deducted off the cost of the fruit, meaning you would only pay £4 on the day.
Each picker, big or small will require their own voucher. The general rule of thumb being if they are small enough for the luxury of a pushchair, they will not need a voucher. Although we are not strictly limiting group size to accommodate those with bigger families, if we feel necessary, we will stagger the entrance of larger groups. Please be understanding should this happen. Further to this, please keep your group together – no free-range children.
Safety measures we have put in place so far:
* Controlled entrance and exit
* Sanitiser on entry/exit
* A limit of 50 people per hour
* Social distancing in line with current guidelines will be in place at all times - anywhere on site.
* One-way routes on some part of site
* We strongly advise no fruit is eaten until you have been able to wash it at home .
We only release a few days worth of picking slots at a time, this is so we can limit the number of unforeseen changes such as weather. Another being lack of crop, daily we will update this statement for those booking as to crop availability, and although we try to remain consistent throughout the season, there may be times where we are low on certain crops. Daily and even bi-daily updates will be on our social media channels.
We have put a lot of thought into how PYO 2020 will be carried out, however, please be aware that any procedures may be subject to change. All systems in place so far are to ensure the safety of The Balloon Tree team and any visitors to site.
