Strawberry picking on the Gower

The sun was shining on Friday and as Oli’s weekend starts on a Friday we decided to go do something different. One of my lovely mum friends had told me that a farm near us was open to the public for fruit picking. As it was such a lovely day we couldn’t think of a better way to spend the morning.

The view from Nicholaston Farm.

In true Reynolds style, we got lost trying to find the farm. Luckily the Gower is a beautiful place so we just took in the lovely views until eventually we found Nicholaston Farm. Once we parked up the car we got two empty punnets and headed off to the fields.

Ready to go pick some strawberries!

The fields were full of black and red currants, gooseberries, raspberries and of course strawberries. Leo struggled to pick any currants, every time he pulled one from its branch it just popped in his fingers, very messy and fun!

Concentrating very hard here!

Once it was clear no currants were going to make it in one piece into the punnets we walked down to the main event, the strawberry field! Leo found this a lot easier and enjoyed eating masses of strawberries as we worked our way through the field.

Caught red handed!
Pro strawberry picker.
Between the 3 of us we collected two large punnets of beautifully fresh strawberries and it only cost us £3. We all had a lovely morning soaking up the sun while doing something different. We just need to eat all these strawberries now before they go bad, shouldn’t be hard for Leo. There is still loads of fruit waiting to be picked at Nicholaston Farm so if you find youself in sunny Swansea then it is definitely worth a vist.
My boys hard at work.
Have you taken your toddler strawberry picking? It’s something fun to do, we well definitely be going again.

    Loving the trilby – how did you get him to keep it on?? Tips welcome 🙂 Looks like you had a great time. I haven't gone fruit picking in years so your post has motivated me to go out and do it and take H with me. Thank you #PointShoot
