Visit a Pumpkin Patch Near London- Crockford Bridge Farm

Visit a Pumpkin Patch Near London- Crockford Bridge Farm

Crockford Bridge farm is located in Surrey just outside of South West London. It is a family owned farm that is equal parts neat, professional and friendly. With large open fields there is plenty of space to walk around and see where does all your fresh produce come from. This is one of the few farms near London that is open for pumpkin picking throughout October. All complete with beautiful displays and a huge pumpkin patch. A perfect place to get into the spooky mood.

Halloween is one of those American holidays that is slowly but steadily growing in popularity here in the UK. And what’s not to love about it? Each household literally stockpiles bucketfuls of delicious candy. There are numerous Halloween themed parties and events all over the place. And, of course, my favourite is pumpkin carving. But this is not all you should be doing during the month of October. A big part of the Halloween spirit is visiting a local pumpkin patch where you get to pick the most perfect pumpkin for the holidays. Great outdoorsy fun for the whole family. Fingers crossed for good weather.Crockford Bridge farm's pumpkin patch with 5 pumpkins in the foreground.A girl is walking alongside a filled pumpkin patch.

The Crockford Bridge Farm Itself

Crockford Bridge Farm is a family owned business that puts a lot of effort into what they do. The farm itself looks great, plenty of space for all the crops. There are hundreds of pumpkins both on displays and on the patch. The people that work there are super friendly and are happy to answer all the questions you might have. All in all an excellent mini adventure during the autumn season.

These guys grow 20 different crops on their fields and are also doing a “Dig your own Christmas tree” experience. One of the only places around London that offer such a service.

Unlike many other local pick your own farms this one is open for pumpkin picking throughout October. Which means you can get there nice and early and avoid the bigger crowds. I’ve been told they are pretty busy on the 3rd and last weekends before Halloween.

Toppedwith tip: There are no cash points on the premises. Although you can pay with a card at the farm shop and the cafe the staff advises you to have sufficient cash for the rest of your shopping.Crockford Bridge farms mini pumpkin display in a huge crate.

Getting to Crockford Bridge Pumpkin Patch

This farm is easily accessible both by public transport and car. It is very conveniently located near a motorway (M25). With a good connection running through Clapham Junction I would say this pumpkin picking experience is the most convenient to Londoners. Especially if you live on the South West side of town. The farm itself is bout a 10 minute walk from the train station.

I do want to point out that Crockford farm is outside of the oyster cards reach. Something we found out only after boarding the train. Just a precaution, tickets will be expected by the railways staff. 🙂

Aside from picking out pumpkins there is also a garden/household warehouse shop as well as a lovely farm shop, where you can buy various meats, cheeses and other goodies. In case you will want to combine your outdoorsy adventure with a bit of garden shopping I would strongly recommend going there by car. That way your mind is at ease to enjoy everything Crockford farm has to offer. (A 24 hour rental in London should cost you somewhere between 60-80 £ not including petrol and a return ticket by train will be around 25£)A girl carrying a beautiful white pumpkin away from the display at Crockford farm.A girl is choosing between two pumpkins at a local pick your own farm.

Pumpkin Picking The Conclusion

(Is this not the title of the cheesiest horror movie you have ever heard of)

I have thoroughly enjoyed my visit to this PYO farm and can easily recommend it as a whole day visit. Definitely an experience more suited for whole families and couples. I do however think that everyone can find something they will enjoy here. It is truly amazing to see fresh produce literally growing in front of you. Whilst on the farm you can’t help but feel more connected to nature. I think this is a perfect way to reintroduce yourself to the natural packaging of fruit and veg. Basically how nature intended it from the start.

I can’t wait to return here during the winter and spring seasons to see how this farm has transformed.A girl walking into the corn field.A girl sitting on a haystack with an orange backpack.A shot of farm boots on a haystack, very rustic.
