Picking updates: Click here for picking updates. Payment: Cash, Cheque, Debit cards, Visa/MasterCard. Other Vegetables; Spinach, Swiss Chard. Parkside Farm has just won the FARMA National Pick Your Own of the Year Award for 2009. Most of our strawberries are now grown on "Table-Tops" (ie at waist height) which saves all that bending! We grow nearly 20 different fruits and vegetables which are grown exclusively for Pick-Your-Own between June and October. We pride ourselves on the quality of our produce, which is "as fresh as it gets"! Crops include “table-top” strawberries (no bending required), raspberries, beans and sweetcorn. The farm is set in the beautiful rolling greenbelt countryside just to the north of Enfield, and yet is easily accessible from all the surrounding areas.  The 2013 season will inevitably be later than usual, with the first of the strawberries not expected until mid June at the earliest. The good news might be that we are much less likely to suffer from frost damage in late spring, as all the crops are so far behind! Minimum Charge; This will be increasing in 2013 to £3 per adult/child, which just means that everyone entering the field has to spend atleast £3 on PYO fruit/veg, or they are (UPDATED: January 19, 2009) (UPDATED: April 19. 2013, from their website)
    A visitor writes on July 26, 2013: "We went to parkside and it was brilliant!!!!!! The experience was fantastic! It was my first time and I was absolutely excited. The farm was very nice, the staff explained stuff and gave us the tubs. We picked strawberries, beetroot (really nice sized) courgettes and french breans and broad beans. Three of us went with a toddler & a baby and the min. purchase was 8 pounds (2 each, inc the toddler) .
    I absolutely loved the experience and will deffo go again(and again), but to a diff farm perhaps. :o) "
