Farm Tours at the Tiptree Visitor Centre


Our Farm Tours run from April to September

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 Tally. 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.

Tickets are available on the day from the Tiptree Jam Shop at £3 per person. 

Our tour times are every Wednesday & Friday at 1.30pm & 2.30pm. (Subject to availability).

After your tour why not indulge in a traditional Afternoon Tea in the tea room and browse around our Jam Shop for all your Tiptree favourites as well as a range of carefully selected giftware.

For all enquiries and to buy tickets on the day please visit the Tiptree Jam Shop.
