We visited Cammas Hall Farm in Hatfield Broad Oak, Essex, for our first experience at Strawberry Picking and without a doubt it is now our yearly tradition.
With the current situation of Covid-19, you do have to book a time slot in advance and once you arrive they have all the correct measures in place, even down to parking meters apart in the car park! Tickets are priced at £3.25 per adult/child (children in buggies not included) and a voucher of £3.00 per ticket is returned to you in fruit vouchers to spend on fruit picked on the farm. They had strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries available on the Pick Your Own Farm (availability to be checked at time of booking). They also have an outside picnic and play area which also must be booked in advance to use and a wonderful farm shop that sold the most delicious cupcakes!
It was a fantastic family morning with no phones or laptops to hand, just a camera to capture the memories. Ava thoroughly enjoyed searching and picking the biggest strawberries she could find, and of course ate 1 or 2 along the way to try! We would highly recommend visiting a fruit farm, it is a perfect way to spend a summers morning or afternoon.
