The question we get asked at Kenyon Hall Farm more than any other, by a country mile is: “When are the strawberries ready?” The first call of the year came in on 8th January when it was dark and frosty all around, and during the last month of glorious sunshine we’ve taken something like 50 calls a day asking the very same!
Safe to say there’s a lot of enthusiastic strawberry pickers around here. There's also some uncertainty about when the season is, which is very understandable. This post aims to clear up some of the confusion and give a preview of what to expect from the 2018 season...
I'm James Bulmer. Born and raised on Kenyon Hall Farm, where I spent the first 18 years of my life. I spent my 20s realising that life in an office wasn't for me, and came back to the farm in 2016 to help my mum and dad. I hope you enjoy these occasional posts and please get in touch if there's something you'd like to know more about and I'll do my best to answer!
