GROWING PHILOSOPHY

Strawberries-2  LMF Plums 2

Copas Farms grow seasonal fruits and vegetables which are primarily selected for their flavour. They are grown using modern planting and cultivation techniques and only the minimum amount of fertilisers and insecticides are used to control pests.

We aim to make visits to our Pick Your Own farms enjoyable and try to provide a pleasant and easy environment in which to pick. We also look to help educate on the importance of locally grown produce.
