"A tonne of gooseberries is gathered between June and August from 200 bushes"
Fields and hedgerows are cast a vivid green in the glassy light of early summer at Alder Carr, a 50-acre farm in Suffolk. Families make their way around the rows of pick-your-own strawberries, two ponies methodically graze the grass nearby and the citrussy aroma of elderflowers fills the air. Stephany Hardingham is collecting the heads of these frothy white blooms and placing them in an apple-picking hod inherited from her grandmother.
