Stoke Fruit Farm on Hayling Island spread sunshine over the island and surrounding areas once again this year by opening up their amazing sunflower fields for the public to ‘pick their own’. Thousands visited, from inside and off the Island, the site in Northney in July and August, where you could pick 5 sunflowers for £4 and also make the most of the stunning scenery with a number of areas for wonderful photo opportunities. The farm also gave visitors the option of donating their entry fee back as part of their ‘random act of kindness’ campaign. Unwanted sunflowers were then donated to local causes, such as Wimborne Rest Home, who received 40 sunflowers to brighten up the home! Along with selling fresh, local produce, Stoke fruit farm are also passionate about the environment and have been supporting ‘Plastic Free July’ by offering milk in glass bottles from a refill machine, and paper punnets of fruit and vegetables. Make sure you pay them a visit!
