Our Story

Crockford Bridge farm occupies around 80 acres of green belt land in West Surrey. The farm is one of the oldest continually farmed farms in Surrey and is mentioned in the Domesday Book.

Whilst the farm has been known by different names over the years, the name ‘Crockford’ derives from the discovery of Roman Pottery at the bottom of the nearby ford crossing the River Bourne. Whilst the ford is no longer in use, it can be seen underneath the road bridge currently forming part of the New Haw Road.

Crockford Bridge Farm has been owned and farmed by the Smith Family since the 1970s. Our current farmer, Paul is a fifth generation farmer and there isn’t much he doesn’t know about growing crops! We specialise in traditionally grown outdoor grown that are grown without the use of polytunnels. The reason for this is simple….taste! We believe traditional growing methods produce the best fruit with a taste you cannot find by growing any other way.
