Disappointed, Ripped off.
Copas Farm charged us £98 for fruit.
You can find cheaper fruit at Harrods.

we were NOT explained how the pricing works, we were given five buckets, kids got excited and they started picking, when we reached till we ended up paying £98, is that a joke?
AVOID AT ANY COST.

Awful experience on Sunday 4th July ! Best avoid !!
Upon approaching members of “staff” where slouching over the counters and didn’t even get up as my family and I approached. This made us feel as though they wasn’t open. The two young boys didn’t seem to be bothered about us coming in and made no effort to greet us in the slightest. The blonde girl, whom we can only assume is the manager spoke to us but gave no direction. She then processed to be rude and while waiting to talking to us was on her phone until the last minute.
We felt extremely unwelcome and made out to seem as though we where interrupting their conversation/day.

As we got back to the shop after spending ages trying to find the stuff (after not getting any directions) there was buckets, litter, hardly any produce and massive water puddles, which my daughter almost slipped on if we hadn’t caught her in time. There was no signs about the puddles of water, which yes it had rained but signs should be put in place as a safety point of view, this is appalling to see. There was lots of staff around, but what seemed to be just one girl on the till who seemed to be untrained and flustered as the queue of people was forming out of the shop. Which gets me onto my next concern. There is NO SOCIAL DISTANCING within the shop, not staff stopping people, and when you ask other customers to step back they give you a filthy look, but no members of staff stepped in to help reduce any concerns. This made us feel very uneasy.

The shop was very low stocked and what was there was mouldy and no quality. It seems like no leadership was happening, and the manager seemed like no help at all when we tried to speak to her (again this was the rude blonde girl we spoke to when coming in). We hardly spent any money with them on Sunday due to our poor experience.

On the other hand we decided to give it another go and returned on Wednesday 7th July. We thought with it being a week day it might be quieter which is true.

Our experience for the day was so much different to Sunday! The lovely young boy was very helpful, the shop was stocked and looked full of colour and pleasing. Everything looked presentable and the young boy seemed always busy but had time for customers. However we did see the manager again, who was sat on the counter when we arrived, then eating an ice cream as we returned.
We spoke to the guy about all the local honeys and while we spoke, we did raise our concerns about our visit on Sunday. He was deeply sorry, unlike the blonde girl, and said he will make sure it never happens whilst he’s working.
He said his name was George, and if there are any problems to ask for him next time we visit. This made us feel like we may return again, however the girl didn’t make us feel like this as she was too busy chatting on her phone and texting to care.
We spent much more money with them today due to the shop looking phenomenal and George’s customer service.

BEWARE OF WEEKENDS!!!!

Extremely rude staff and dodgy weighing scales. I got a bee sting on my hand due to which I ended up having a lot of pain, redness and swelling. We had to leave early unfortunately. However as we were 2 adults and 1 small child we could not purchase farm produce of £12 equivalent to the entrance fees. I requested the till staff if I could instead buy something from the farm shop. The till girl was very rude and instead of asking if i was okay was in a rush to leave as her shift was coming to an end. The other staft on the grounds kept discouraging us to go near the plum trees as its a 10 mins long walk for kids and not worth visiting.
We also found the quality of strawberries and rasberries very poor..mostly rotten during the short time we were there. We visited Garson Farm in Esher, Surrey last year which is in a different league all together and were regretting why we went to Copas Farm which is all hype and pathetically managed by money-grubbing people.

A family with young kids in front of us in the queue was being heavily interrogated by till staff asking them where they filled the basket from shops or fields!! As shop items cannot be redeemed with entrance fees voucher credit. The young children with them were left tearful.
The whole experience of visiting Copas farms turned like physical and mental torture. Not the fun and happy time like we had at Garson farms.
Based on my experience would not recommend Copas farm especially due to the shoddy staff and low quality produce.

First time visit, drove 40mins to get here with my mum and daughter. It was our nearest 'pick your own' place from Aylesbury. We would usually go to Peterly Manor Farm in Great Missenden, but they're closed this summer.
Enjoyed it here though, such a nice big farm to wander around for a couple of hours. There are currently loads of apple trees ready for picking and lots of delicious strawberries and raspberries. I also got a bunch of green beans. We found it easy to cover the £4 per person online booking fee, went over by about £5. Saw the sweetcorn fields, but they weren't ready yet to be picked.
I think it needs to be made clearer on their website though that you MUST bring a face mask with you when you visit, as you need one in the farm shop in order to pay for the produce you have picked. This isn't clearly stated online. Luckily, we had a couple of masks, but not one for my daughter.
For those who were disappointed there was not more fruit or vegetables at this time, there's lots of fresh produce in the farm shop. :)

Great experience for my teenager and younger child who had a lot of fun picking the fruits! There were mainly strawberries, raspberries, apples and some plum ( not much plum was left ) and corn.
The £4 entry fee is discounted once you weigh your produce so is really value for money! I had to freeze my fruits and make tart so much we collected with £20.
The staff was friendly and nice. I am shocked to hear some reviewers saying staff were racist as me and my family are foreigners ourselves and everyone was very nice.
The Iver farm is only 40 minutes from London which is great.
I will definitely go back again to pick more seasonal fruits/ vegetables!

I’m very mindful whilst writing this review as The Covid pandemic must have had negative implications on the up keep of the farm but I still feel a few things should be pointed out to other visitors to avoid disappointment.
Firstly it’s great the staff explain where everything is when you first arrive but this also gives the false impression there is available crop. There were no beetroot and many other veg like another advisor has mentioned prior to me.
Secondly £4 entry is very steep considering I couldn’t fill my bucket with enough crop.
Thirdly I had booked a 1.30 slot and found it difficult to find any crop , I think it’s unfair on anyone arriving later to have to pay entry when there is even less crop.
Overall I appreciated the change of scenery but I wouldn’t recommend the experience as a must at this present time. I hope in the following months others will prove me wrong as it’s a nice concept

I really enjoyed my visit as other pick your own farms required prebooking, I love that I could just decide to go fruit picking spontaneously and just turn up:)
The staff were really friendly and one of them went out of his way (without being asked) to help and advise me and let me know about recipes on the website. The fruit is really juicy and tasty too and I think it’s a fair price. Will definitely return

There were many groups of people with children running around not observing social distancing. We have been coming here for many many years and it is the first time when we had to pay £4 per person entry fee! Truly ripe and larger strawberries were hard to find which made filling up even a small carton with £4 worth of fruit quite an ordeal. The situation with cherries was even worse - we barely managed to fill up the carton with pale and barely ripe fruit but we still had to pay the minimum charge! At the check out self distancing was hard to maintain. Rubbish such as plastic bottles (empty and full ones), paper coffee cups were strewn in the field amongst the fruit plants and trees. Overall a thoroughly unpleasant experience! Won't be returning there.
