Family-owned Cammas Hall Farm, in the beautiful countryside of the Hertfordshire/ Essex border, helped pioneer the PYO movement in the 1960s. Large letters at the edge of a field proclaiming ‘strawberry fields forever’ are a nod to that era.
Collect your own car snacks with a stroll through the fields to pick strawberries, raspberries, cherries, blackcurrants, blueberries and sweetcorn, depending on the season. When little people have had enough of being in the car, a nature trail, children’s playground and summer maize maze will make a welcome break.
In the Tea Barn, homemade cakes, sandwiches, jacket potatoes, cream teas and smoothies are made with farm-fresh ingredients. There are seats inside and out, and a garden marquee. Honey direct from the farm’s hives can be bought in the shop, as can farm produce including fresh eggs, chutneys, meringues and preserves. If it’s not produced here on the farm it’s sourced from suppliers in the neighbouring counties.
