“Every Family has a duty and obligation to keep good ties with another and their close relations”.
A Saturday afternoon in summer July was truly a perfect day to and go visit Parkside Farm for the first time and what better way to spend some quality time with my whole family gathered together at a farm picking plenty of strawberries and vegetables, since we were all free to take a road trip down to Enfield, London.
Viewing of the farm from the top was just astonishing. This place does get really busy very quickly with lots of families gathering, picnicking and kids running down across empty fields. Timing we managed to go and visit Parkside Farm was straight after 2 pm, it did start to get become really busy as it was near towards end of the day but it was not ideal if you wanted to stay longer as we had to rush back as we got told it was closing soon since queues were seriously long just to buy your chosen fruits and veg that we picked. I personally recommend going there very early in the morning, so you avoid the long queue and get the first pick on fresh fruits and veg they have.
However, the great thing about this place is that they provide you with baskets and bags at the entrance before going on to the fields to collect those fruits & veg then you’re pretty much free to roam around. Also on another positive note about this place is the fact they show signs of where all those various fruits and veg are placed at, so if you’re visiting just for a specific fruits or veg then these signs are ideal for you, otherwise there is plenty of stuff to explore around.
What we found first and collected were a whole load of strawberries in our baskets, since at start all we managed to see were plenty of strawberries all over the place, after going further up we saw courgettes, french beans, spinach, berries, onions, beetroot. As you can see from the image above partially what we all collected in our baskets.
Following a long haul of finding fruits and veg, we all decided to go to top of hill and have a little picnic with my family, as captured below the whole family heading towards the top of a hill but stunned by the view over the hills, it was one beautiful scenery at top as captured from my S6 Edge.
My father and uncle are admiring the scenery half way down. Eventually towards the end, as it was coming to its closed time, we had little time for kids to have a race from the top of the hill and down, which was such a stunning viewing as you could see their smile and laughter of enjoyment running down. Capturing them racing down was the best part as you could see they face expressions running down with an amazing sight over the hills.
To conclude I have to say our fridges were filled with all these strawberries that were collected. However, how beautiful are these strawberries below? I picked up plenty of them as we walked along since these were the most collected fruits from our hunt of fruits and vegetables. There were so many fresh and nice strawberries to choose from their crops.
