Time Out rounds up the best Pick Your Own farms near London

Posted at 10:00 am, August 5, 2011 in Food & Drink

Instead of picking up a an over-packaged box of air-freighted blackberries from the supermarket, why not support local farms and pick your own berries in the fresh air? The summer sun means bounties of fruit and vegetables are at their peak; it’s an ideal time to get your fill of strawberries, raspberries, sweet peas and tomatoes and, as the season winds down, you’ll find squashes, sweetcorn and pumpkins. We’ve chosen the best PYO farms within reasonable travelling distance from central London (most are within the M25), from Stanhill Farm in Dartford and Hewitts Farm in Orpington to Home Cottage Farm in Iver Heath and Garsons in Esher.

For info, see London’s Best Pick Your Own Farms listing.
