Foxberry Farms, based on the shores of Lough Neagh, are selling delicious strawberries to the public beside their farm - after huge local demand.

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.
