Glebe Farm has announced its first Pick Your Own (PYO) Daffodils at their family run farm in Lower Brailes near Shipston.

The farm has been in their family for 100 years and is in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the edge of the Cotswolds.

Mary Cole in Glebe Farm said: "Following on from the popularity of our Pick Your Own Sunflowers last summer we decided to plant an area of daffodils on our small farm in Brailes with the intention of offering Pick Your Own Daffodils this Spring.

"We are very excited to be finally opening to the public on Monday 12th April now that restrictions are lifting.

"We planted seven different varieties of daffodils using a bulb planter, which fed the bulbs into the ground. With the field now in full bloom it really is a glorious sight!"

The farm will be open from 10am to 4pm Monday to Sunday while flowers last. For more information see the farm's Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100057330734871Mary added: "The field is off the beaten track in a beautiful part of the farm so please be prepared for a lovely walk across two fields of Cotswold countryside to reach the site. Picnics welcome."

Mary Cole’s sister Sarah is bringing her vintage caravan cafe (@brewcaravan) Monday to Wednesday next week, and will be ready to welcome visitors with barista coffee, tea and homemade cakes. They will also have Fir Tree Pottery on site selling bespoke terracotta daffodil vases.
