The fruit and vegetable farm in Beaurains – La cueillette de Beaurains Chapeau de Paille

Pick your own organic fruits and vegetables directly from the trees and plants !

This is a place that I highly recommend for a visit if you are coming to Arras. This well maintained farm is located just 5-10 minutes drive from the Arras city center, in a neighboring town called Beaurains.

Spread over 15 hectares, the farm offers a variety of organic fruits, vegetables, flowers, and also fruit juices and jams. People can pick the fruits and vegetables they want to buy directly from the trees and plants.

The owners of this farm, Mrs. and Mr. Chatelain are growing seasonal fruits and vegetables, so their products keep changing throughout the year. The Chatelain family started this farm 8 years ago (in 2006) with only 5 hectares of land at that time. Today, they are also growing several varieties of flowers.

Most of the fruits and vegetables are priced cheaper than in the nearby supermarkets and they have a great taste because they are organic, and fresh without any refrigeration.

At the entrance of the farm, you will find wheelbarrows, baskets, plastic bags, knives and pruning scissors that you can use to help you select the best products. Children love picking fruits and vegetables and it can be a wonderful educational trip for them. In fact, many families come with kids.
