Strawberry picking at Over Farm, Gloucester

For me, strawberry picking marks the end of Summer and the welcome of Autumn. When my sister and I were little, my mum would take us picking every year and we loved it. It’s a really nice day out and something every one can enjoy… well unless you don’t like strawberries of course.

As we had a few hours off work for lunch, we met some of Mitch’s family at Over farm. Situated just off of the Over roundabout, it’s easy to find and dog friendly – yay! I have driven past the farm so many times on my way to and from Bristol, but have never gone in. This will now be a regular stop for us in the future.

Over farm is a family run, working farm producing organic fruits and vegetables. They also run events throughout the year and have a butchers on site. Vegan friendly, the cafe and shop caters for all with its local produce, so it’s hard to stop yourself buying!

There are also farm animals you can feed, which is great for kids. We unfortunately ran out of time so didn’t get to stop at the cafe or to see the animals. However we did have time to grab a tub of organic cappuccino ice cream, some fruit and veg, chocolate and a big bag of pork scratchings for Jed (the dog). He was pretty pleased with his day out and so were we.

  1. Dear Emily,
    Have you ever considered being a local tourism blogger as a way to also pay for your travels? Consider promoting local places, business, and food stops to bring in tourism. Lots of people hit larger towns, bit to frequent smaller ones can boast local economy. You show the appeal to my family to visit England and its countryside.
    Just a thought,
    Gary
