Primrose Vale Farm Shop & PYO - by Mummytolittlee

Posted by Mummytolittlee on 22 July 2014 at 11:02

Situated on the edge of the Cotswold scarp between Cheltenham and Gloucester is Primrose Vale Farm Shop & PYO. They grow super fresh, seasonal fruit and vegetables. Whether you prefer robust winter roots, soft summer fruits or the first cut of asparagus, there’s plenty grown at Primrose Vale to suit everyone’s tastes.

Primrose Vale is one of our favourite local days out. It's a beautiful space and our children love being able to run around in the open - picking fruit, playing in the park and visiting the sweet bunnies.

Entry to Primrose Vale is free, as is use of the children's park. The cost of picking the produce depends on which fruit or vegetable you want. Last weekend we spent under £5 for the HUGEST punnet of strawberries, but the joy of seeing your children eat food they have picked is priceless! Visiting a PYO with children is such a fantastic way to teach them about where healthy food comes from and they love being able to get involved in that process.

During the summer months Primrose Vale is brimming with soft fruit crops, and in the autumn and winter months you can pick a wide variety of vegetables.

Local produce is a key part of the business, so at Primrose Vale food miles are kept to a minimum and they support other farmers and food producers. The onsite farm shop also reflects this philosophy, selling produce sourced from Gloucestershire and surrounding counties whenever possible.

Nursery for babies... is it right? - by Andy

Both mummy and daddy have full time jobs with long hours and so we had to make the decision over whether or not to put Doofy in nursery. Even if we have a day off he sometimes goes in. Does this make us bad parents?...
