    Wednesday 24th May 2017 : Earn some £££ – Belvoir Fruit Farms Annual Harvest

    Elderflower Harvest 2017

    We need your Picking Power!
    It’s that time of year again when we kindly ask you to roll up your sleeves and take to the English hedgerows to help us pick another bumper crop of Elderflowers; so that we may continue to make you your naturally lovely Elderflower Cordial and Elderflower Pressé. We will be opening our doors at four Picking Stations this year, from Monday 24th May, and look forward to welcoming you and your floral bounty…

    Some simple but important things to know…

    We pay £2.10 per kilo. We like elderflower heads, so no stalks please and they need to be fresh so please deliver the flowers on the same day you picked them because they go brown very quickly and become unusable.

    You’ll need…

    All you need is a bin bag to put the flowers in and some good walking boots. We advise you to wear long trousers so you don’t get stung by nettles.
