Amazing eating feats around the world that will impress and repulse in equal measure
Hewitts Farm, Knockholt, Orpington, Kent
From Knockholt’s small rail station, amble over the golf course to find 78 acres of family-run farmland and bountiful gooseberries, courgettes, strawberries, spinach and, into autumn, up to 13 eating-apple varieties. It’s open every day throughout summer (quite a rarity with PYO farms) and also sells mistletoe for those already plotting their Christmas snogs. Remember to bring cash – they don’t take plastic.
