Finding Parkside Farm
Parkside Farm is in Hadley Road, which runs between Chase Farm Hospital on the A 1005 (Enfield Ridgeway) and West Lodge Hotel on the A111 (Cockfosters Road).
The nearest railway station is Gordon Hill which is just over 1 mile away. It is on the Letchworth to Moorgate line, and passes through Finsbury Park, which links up to the tube network. Cockfosters tube station (Piccadilly Line) is about 3 miles away but mini cabs are available.

How it works…
You buy a Fruit Voucher in advance of your visit @ £4 per adult/child, & select a 15 minute entry time-slot. The value of the voucher will be fully refunded, provided you spend above that amount on PYO produce. Max. 2 hours picking time.
Simply present your barcoded voucher in printed form (preferred) or on your phone, to gain entry at your allotted time, and again at the tills to receive the refund.
Current Restrictions: There must be at least 1 adult per 3 x children of 12 or under.
