find your secret place

The Bon-Af Berry Farm, just outside Parys, gives its visitors a real farm experience and day out with a difference! It a self-pick berry farm with over 80 varieties of succulent berries.

Bring the whole family for a day of fun and berry picking straight from the bushes. Varieties of berries for picking include gooseberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and some rarer options like Elderberries and Black Nightshade. If you don’t eat all you pick, which could prove difficult with that many tasty options, you may have just enough to make your own jam!

After wandering up and down amongst the berries, visitors can reward their hard work with incredibly tasty Berry Cheesecake or Berry Ice-cream at the quaint Tea Garden. On offer in the little Shop is also a variety of jams, dried fruits, nuts, fruit juices and other homemade delicacies – don’t just go picking, do a little shopping too!

Also available are tours of the orchard as well as butter making and coffee roasting and even a small museum with a few historical items such as a phonograph dating back to 1889 and a 125-year-old dress. Call ahead for tours or pop in for a cup of tea and cheesecake, either way the Bon-Af Berry Farm is worth a visit.
