PYO Farms

Its like most things, its cheaper if you buy in bulk. The best way is to grow your own, we do at home and its far more tastier and organic
Growing your own fruit and veg can be a somewhat funny experience as I found when all my tomatoes, strawberries and other stuff didnt thrive in the UK weather lol!! Mind you a green house might have been a good idea!! :)
Rachiie -ox-
very good PYO around here

BL You may not know that the area where I live was famous for market gardening, growing fresh produce years ago. All this area was Nurseries, orchards and fruit/veg farms until it gradually got built up, Because it's at the foot of the Downs the micro climate suits growing crops. In fact about half a mile from here is the first ever and now famous chalk garden at Highdown Towers.
Anyway - that's why there are so many Garden Centres and a great PYO and farm shop. I have found that yes, prices are much cheaper than supermarkets and Huseyin is right about the packaging, carbon foot print,freshness etc.
If it's just for the 2 of you it's really worth it in the summer and can be fun too although hard on the back,neck shoulders ,be careful. Most of the stuff grows low.
A bit more history - the area used to be renowned and world famous (not California! - okay Europe famous) for tomato growing until they exported their methods and glass house secrets to Holland, who took it over and now they've got most of the business.
I can give you more info on where i get my
fruit/veg from tomorrow.
