Gather Thy Fruit or Parkside ‘Pick Your Own’ Farm

A mini-walk (that is not really) to Parkside PYO farm was a great success. I reckon it qualifies for a walk because we walked a total of around 3 miles in a 30C degree heat with a six-year-old in tow. Parkside farm is a short train ride away from home (3 stops on the northbound First Capital Connect service) and reachable via quiet and picturesque roads of Gordon Hill.

Having lived in London for more than 9 years now, this is the first time I have heard of a PYO farm in the vicinity and so here I am spreading the joy and the news in case you are as ignorant as I was: yes, there is a farm you can easily visit to pick your own crop in North London.

The only negatives? Two:

1. No apple trees on the farm and the nearest one to us is way outside London as my 5 min Google search confirmed.

2. It’s pricey if you decide to stock up on berries for jam making purposes.
