We pride ourselves in producing good quality produce to people across Hampshire and Dorset, which is “as fresh as it gets”! And as we select varieties for their flavour and not shelf life, they really do taste good.

So come on down to the Farm and Pick Your Own tasty fruit and vegetables. You can find us at Hinton on the A35 Lyndhurst Road, 2 miles from Christchurch. It really is a great day out and both fun and educational for the children. Follow us on Instagram or Facebook to see what we’re up to – @sopleyfarmbakeryshopandpyo

Photographs in the Sunflowers

We are very happy for people to photograph themselves in our sunflower patches but do ask that as our business is as a pick your own and not as a free recreation site, we’d be very grateful if you would spend some money with us! For those photographers wanting to use the sunflowers for client photoshoots, we charge £100 +vat and do not close the patches off to the public but do not limit you to time on the day. Please email us to let us know when you intend to come.
