Using the Loo
There are no lavatories on our Farm and we ask all visitors to take this on board when planning their visit.
There are no toilets the on the farm or in our fields due to the prohibitive cost of providing this facility. We are simply a working farm with fields open for customers to pick rather than a tourist attraction.
Sadly we cannot meet the cost of maintaining and providing lavatories without charging an entry fee.
We suggest that customers visiting to pick fruit make use of the many nearby public loo's a short 2 minute drive away in Addlestone before arriving at the farm. For those with younger children, travel potties are an acceptable option, but waste must be taken away with you. It is never acceptable to use our fields or hedgerows as a loo or to dispose of potty waste in our bins.
Frequently asked questions.
Is there an entry charge to the farm?
No, there is no admission charge to enter the farm, however we do operate a minimum spend policy.
Customers are required to spend a minimum amount at the PYO (£4 per adult and £2 per child). This is then redeemed against your crops at the exit till. No change is given should you pick less than £4 per adult or £2 per child.
Please remember this is not an admission fee and produce may still not be eaten in the fields before paying.
How are crops priced?
All fruit and vegetables are sold by weight. We supply empty punnets for you to pick into at the entrance to the farm. When you have finished picking, we weigh your produce and take payment at the exit.
Can I bring a buggy?
No, due to the extensive damage caused to our drip irrigation by a thoughtless minority forcing buggies through our rows of fruit, Buggies may not longer be taken into our picking fields. Buggie's can be left at the entry kiosk although we recommend bring a carrier.
Can I eat fruit in the picking fields?
Definitely not! Nothing should ever be eaten before it's weighed and paid for Eating our crops before is theft and unacceptable. We rely on crop sales to keep the farm open as a viable business.
Can I wash my fruit and veg on site?
No, we don't provide facilities for you to wash your crops. The idea of PYO is to provide fresh crops for you to take home and enjoy! We recommend washing fruit at the last minute before eating it.
Can I bring a picnic?
No, Picnics and BBQ's aren't permitted anywhere on the farm. We've tried our best to accomodate this in the past but have sadly have become overrun with litter.
Are dogs allowed?
No, for hygiene reasons, dogs are not allowed in the picking fields. Dogs on leads with responsible owners are welcome in communal areas of the farm for the majority of the year. Unfortunately, we don't allow dogs on the farm during our busy Pumpkin Patch event.
Are coach parties accepted?
No. The farm is only open to private customers wishing to pick fruit. Coach parties and school educational visits are accepted only at our discretion and with our prior agreement. We reserve the right to charge an entry fee to organised tours and commercial operators (including childminders) bringing their customers to our farm. Please email us for more information email@example.com
Is there Disabled Access?
Wheelchair users are advised that Crockford Bridge Farm is a working farm with limited hard standing areas. The majority of our 75 acres is open farmland.
We aren't able to lay permanent pavements or walkways across the farm for agricultural reasons and also because the farm is in Greenbelt.
Access is easy on dry summer days and many wheelchair users find the farm easily accessible when dry. Access outside of the dry summer season can be challenging, patricularly in the Autumn and Winter months or after periods of heavy rainfall.
Driving to the farm
The farm is very close to J11 of the M25 adn there is plenty of free parking. We ask customers to please park in our grass field car park rather than the adjacent Garden Centre which is a separate business.
