Blackmoor Farm PYO

KOMPAS Lincoln Instagram feed (18 July 2016)

…we don’t want to alarm anyone, but the sun’s out. In July. In Lincoln. *mad happy sun dance* And what’s a fruit-loving Lincolnite to do on a fine British summer’s day? Go strawberry picking, of course! Yep: contrary to popular belief, this summery pastime isn’t only for Jane Austen characters and fictional German serial killers (Google it if you fancy a chilling poolside read) – and we’re lucky enough to have not one, but two dedicated PYO farms just a short drive away from Lincoln city centre. Today we’re at Blackmoor Farm, just off Lincoln Road near Doddington. Pull up at this friendly local business, grab a punnet (or five) and set off among the rows until you’ve had your fill. Priced per kilo, things usually end up around £3 a punnet. The next challenge? Not scoffing the whole lot in the car before you get home… (#guilty.) Got a better-looking punnet than us? Take a snap and tag us! #PYO #Strawberries #PYOFarm #BlackmoorFarm #Lincoln #Doddington #VisitLincoln #SummerinLincoln #PickYourOwn #Fruit #Strawberry #FreshFruit #FreshStrawberries #BritishStrawberries #BritishSummertime #Fruitlovers #Fruitporn #DayOut
