Cammas hall fruit farm essex
I was a bit worried that we’d be ‘told off’ for eating stuff as we went (not eating things on the way round obviously not being an option!
) but we were advised to try the fruit to check if we had the correct trees and bushes. We visited Hilltop Farm in September but if you plan it right you can do strawberry picking here too – be warned though that the strawberries tend to go very quickly, this is a small farm not a big super commercial operation so you need to call and check.
She was clearly just having too much fun to waste time on the toilet *searches for silver lining of failing potty training!
* What was also lovely was how proud the kids were of their fruit, and Coco couldn’t wait to share it with Daddy when we got home with lashings of delicious cream also from the farm shop.
We picked plums, apples, redcurrants, blackcurrants and blackberries and The Toddler munched his way through all of them as we wandered round, helping to pick them and letting us know which ones he liked the most (the plums).
They told us what was in season, gave us pummets and carrier bags to put our fruit in and set us on our way.I’ve wanted to do fruit picking for ages, I grew up in Kent and picking strawberries was just one of those things that you did every summer holiday.As I grew older I had friends who worked on the farms picking blackberries and the likes and to me it always reminds me of my childhood.Once you arrive, you’ll find the car park in a field just in front of the entrance, no change needed.Once inside the building you have the very delicious tea rooms and walk way through to the outside seating area and playground to the left, and the shop where you can buy a host of yummy goodies and most importantly your picking baskets to the right.
