PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! We're always encouraging our children to eat fruit and veg, so what better way than getting them to pick their own. With the official arrival of summer, now's the time to get those punnets out and get picking those crops. There are strawberries, raspberries and more, but at some venues entry prices have changed so you might want to check before you head along. Even if the sun's shining, remember farmers recommend wearing sturdy shoes for the fruit picking - wellies if it's raining - and for small children to wear long sleeves and trousers to protect their arms and ankles from thistles and nettles dotted around the fields.

Kenyon Hall Farm, Warrington Kenyon Hall is massively popular among families wanting to pick their own fruit. For strawberry picking you need to book online here when slots become available - usually two to three days in advance. For anything else you can just turn up. Fruit picking at Kenyon Hall Farm (Image: Manchester Family) There's a ' fruit picking ' guide on its website, but essentially you just select your own fruit and veg from the fields at the site, which has a play area which is open every day. Strawberry and gooseberry season is already underway, with redcurrants, blackcurrants and tayberries in late June and other fruit and veg over the coming weeks. Tickets cost £4.75 per person, under 18 months free. You can get family tickets from £16.99. The ticket includes car parking, entry to the fields, as well as a punnet to fill with strawberries (approx. 350g) to take home. Any extras will be paid for by weight when you leave the fields. Visitors get to choose an entry time when booking (every 15 minutes between 10am and 4pm) but can stay for as long as they like. Most visitors spend around 30-60 minutes picking fruit and then another hour browsing the farm shop, plant centre, eating at the cafe or playing on the play area.

The tracks that lead to the fields are a mixture of grass and gravel, so most prams and wheelchairs can access the fields in dry conditions. In wet weather it can get a little muddy, so access will depend on the type of pram or wheelchair. There is a toilet on site with hand washing and baby change facilities.
