There is nothing more blissful or satisfying than picking your own berries, it's a perfect activity for all ages and a great way to enjoy a warm summer afternoon. We have been meaning to top by and check out Gelynis Farm in Morganstown, less than 20 minutes from Cardiff City Centre but feels like a world away.
Having to park just before a level crossing and in a field adjustment we were immediately greeted by a lovely horse who cantered over straight away to say hello.
For me the time we spend outdoors with the little man is the highlight of the day, it's the time I feel most like "Me" and a sense of technology freedom is always welcomed. It was such a blissful day with the greatest of simple pleasures to be surrounded by lovely natural fruit and family. It's such a little gem of a farm and so near to where we live I cannot believe it's taken us this long to have a proper look around and it also has such a lovely backdrop in the form of Castle Coch, a pretty little castle pearched on the side of a hill.
After having our bucket weighed with lovely fresh fruit - a big bag for only £4, we had a little wonder down the Taff trail which also connects to the farm. We had a few nibbles here and there of black currents and raspberries and then headed home to make some cordial. Once home we realised quite a few of our blackberries had little worms on them so after soaking them in a little salt (advised by a few twitter friends) we made a lovely cordial.
We really hope to visit atleast twice more before the end of the summer and we cannot wait to go back.
