There are a number of pick your own farms near London where you enjoy a day out picking a wide range of fruit, vegetables and flowers during summer and autumn. In this guide, I have listed our favourite pick your own farms near London that we have visited through the years.
Some pick your own farms start to open in late spring for rhubarb and asparagus picking, while others open in June for strawberry picking season. More crops become available from late June onwards, including raspberries, cherries, green beans, apples and much more. We enjoy heading back in late summer to pick sunflowers and sweetcorn, and it’s an annual tradition to visit the pumpkin patch in autumn.
Keep in mind that most pick your own farms near London will require booking a time slot following government guidelines and time slots are typically released a few days in advance.
