A relaxing day out at the "Pick Your Own" fruit and veg Parkside Farm (http://www.parksidefarmpyo.co.uk), Middlesex! Not only you get the freshest fruit, but it also tastes so much better if you’ve picked it yourself : )

Parkside farm (http://www.parksidefarmpyo.co.uk) has been a family business since 1938, and have started with Pick-Your-Own crops over 30 years ago (1979.). They are now growing about 20 different crops on some 50 acres!
It was voted the national ‘Pick-your own Farm of the Year’ 2011 by the National Farmers’ Retail & Markets Association (FARMA).

In July, we can expect to be picking strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants, blackberries and plums!

Expected vegetable crops: courgettes, broad beans, French beans, spinach, onions and beetroot.

Meetup cost: There is no Meetup organisers fee for this event!
Please note, the farm has a minimum charge of £3 fruit/veg bought on the day. This in not an entrance fee, and most of us will be picking fruit & veg far in excess of £3.

Meetup date: Saturday 26th July 2014

Meetup time & place:

a) 10.30am at the entrance to the Parkside Farm, Hadley Road, Enfield, Middlesex, EN2 8LA

OR

b) 10.00am at Gordon Hill train station, zone 5 . It is on the Letchworth to Moorgate line, and passes through Finsbury Park, which links up to the tube network.
We will then walk from the station to the farm (just over 1 mile), and meet with the rest of the group at the entrance.

Travelling by car: Parkside Farm is in Hadley Road, which runs between Chase Farm Hospital on the A 1005 (Enfield Ridgeway) and West Lodge Hotel on the A111 (Cockfosters Road)

What to bring:
- sensible footwear – the farm can be very muddy
- waterproofs
- sunscreen/hat/sunglasses
- water
- money for picked fruit & veg and any refreshments
- sandwich/picnic lunch

There is a shop on site selling cold drinks and ice-creams, but there’s no café to buy food. So bring your own picnic/sandwiches and we’ll find a nice spot on the farm to have a light lunch and enjoy some of our freshly picked fruit!
