Crockford Bridge PYO Farm
Crockford Bridge PYO Farm opens in late spring for rhubarb and asparagus picking, and is a popular pick your own farm in Surrey for picking strawberries, raspberries, carrots, sunflowers and much more from May to September.
Crockford Bridge Farm is a great place for a day out with little children since it’s easy to walk around and there’s a small playground, ice cream stand and bee house to look at near the farm entrance. We have enjoyed our family days out here through the years. You can read about our first experience in our Strawberry Picking at Crockford Bridge Farm post which was from when Little T was about 18 months old.

We visited last October and there was a great selection of gourds and pumpkins of all shapes and sizes. We purchased a few to bring home for carving and decorating and some Halloween treats at the Tea Shack. I’m looking forward to heading back this year for the Pumpkin Market.
