The Lukies family have been farming at Cammas Hall Farm since 1889 and when the PYO opened in 1966 it became one of the pioneering PYO farms of the era. The current farmer, Jonathan Lukies, took over the reigns during the 1990s and lives on the farm with his wife and four children. In recent years he has introduced a series of improvements that have been necessary to secure the farm’s future and ensure it has plenty to offer to all those visiting while retaining its rustic appeal. In addition to the fruit, Jonathan also farms wheat and oilseed rape that can be seen in the surrounding fields before the August harvest.
The mission of the farm is to be a destination where visitors can enjoy the highest quality local produce in beautiful rural surroundings. Our friendly and professional team aim to provide a unique and affordable experience that can be enjoyed by all ages.

Before visiting always check what produce we have available (this can change on a daily basis), take a look to see if we have any events running and check out our latest news! This will give you an idea of what to expect when you arrive at the farm.
During our peak season from June to August the weekends can be busy. If you are able to visit during the week please do so. We will supply you with punnets for the PYO but you are welcome to bring your own container/s if you wish. Please see a member of staff on arrival who will weigh your container prior to entering the fields.
Take a look at the weather. If it’s raining or has been raining you can expect the farm to be muddy so please dress appropriately. Our irrigation systems can cause areas of mud even in the best of weather. If it’s very hot please bring your hat and your sunscreen! Whilst we have indoor and covered areas at the farm it’s very much an outdoor experience and you could be out in the fruit fields, nature trail or maize maze for a while.
