Owned by the Fox family in Derrytrasna, Co Armagh they have been inundated every year by people calling to buy strawberries they sell to shops and stores across Ireland.

Owner Philip Fox said: "This year we decided to set up an Honesty Box filled with punnets of freshly picked strawberries. Customers can call at the farm and take a punnet and put the money in a box beside it.

"It has already proved very successful," he said, adding that the firm is 'flat out' picking thousands of strawberries for outlets across the country.

The Fox family have been growing strawberries on the shores of Lough Neagh for the past 80 years and now sell to many major outlets such as M&S.
