Pick Your Own- Day at the Farm

Sunday morning we said good bye to London and went for a drive at a farm just outside the city in Esher to pick some vegetables and fruits. The concept of "pick your own" is completely new to me and at first I couldn`t believe this is actually a thing. Growing up in Romania the countryside and fresh fruits and vegetables markets are everywhere so no one really gets that excited about it, but since I moved to London I`ve realised how lucky I was. Farmers markets are usually only held in weekends and only in few places and adding to that the fact that prices are usually much higher people prefer buying veggies from the supermarket. Recently however there has been an increase in demand for bringing back the old school freshness which has led to the opening of more farmers markets, more organic eating places, and more farms where you can pick your own veggies to give those that don`t have this luxury the chance to experience a bit of farm life at least for a few hours. The farm we visited is called Garsons and is just 40 mins away from our house by car. We picked up loads of veggies and fruits including strawberries and raspberries all of which were delicious. The funniest thing though was seeing these cute little kids with raspberries all over their faces that looked like they`re having an amazing time.
