Farm Tours at the Tiptree Visitor Centre


Our Farm Tours run from May to August

Join us on a guided tractor tour around the Tiptree Fruit Farms where we have been farming since 1757 and making quality preserves since 1885.

Embark on a 40 minute journey through our strawberry fields with your tour guide. During the tour you will see traditional methods combined with cutting edge new technologies in fruit farming.

Learn about the Wilkin family history, our wide variety of home grown fruits and even where the phrase being ‘caught red handed’ came from.
