Our strawberry season has dramitically grown in length from the traditional 6 weeks mid summer, to harvesting from April until November. Our biomass boiler heats 2 hectares of polytunnels to increase the harvest at each end of the season. We now grow 120 acres of strawberries, with majority of which are planted directly in the ground. We have 25 acres of the table tops which are grown in a substrate called Coir. The main variety that we grown is Sonata due to its sweet flavour, fantastic shape and the percentage of Class 1’s they produce. The other varieties we grow include Amesti, Flair and Driscolls Amado. Please see the Strawberry Journey for more information.
