Christmas at Secretts

Expert growers since 1908, Secretts is a family-run farm in Milford, Surrey. Specialists in producing top-quality award-winning seasonal fruit and vegetables, which they sell via wholesalers and in their farm shop. From tangy rhubarb to prized English asparagus, the sweetest baby carrots and beets and autumn squash, more than 20 crops are grown in Secretts’ fields. In particular Secretts is famous for tender salad leaves, selling 1.2 tonnes a week into the restaurant trade in London and the South East. From mid-summer the Pick Your Own is open and strawberries are grown in raised beds for easy picking.

Secretts Farm shop, which opened in 1977, is renowned for its cheese counter, with over 300 different varieties stocked and this is complemented by an eclectic range of confectionary, preserves, biscuits, artisan breads and cooking ingredients.  Expect a great range of fresh and local produce (when in season) which includes those legendary home-grown salad leaves.

Local Food Surrey says

Secretts Farm was one of the pioneers of pick your own in the UK, first opening its gates in the 1970s. It's good to see it still flourishing today.

Pick your own fruit and vegetables, browse the shop and then treat yourself to refreshments at the café - could this be the perfect day out? We do believe it might!
