Head out to the strawberry fields in Suffolk this summer and get picking.
Strawberries are a part of British summer. Whether its in your Pimms at the Royal Suffolk Show or with a bit of cream at Wimbledon there’s nothing quite like a good British strawberry.
In recent years the UK has changed its attitude towards fresh produce. Organic fruit and veg has never been so popular, with Suffolk and Oulton Broad relishing the publics desire for local food.
