It’s been an Early season here on the Farm, we have picked our crop of Early River Plums but don’t have enough to open the Farm Shop just yet.

Victoria Plums and Cambridge Gage crops are looking good and ripening beautifully.

New in this week...
Glou Morceau Pear - Originates from Belgium and is a traditional desert pear. The flesh is soft and buttery with a rich sweet flavour.
Ida Red - A good keeper with attractive colour and mild apple taste.
D’arcy Spice - Essex 1785. Hot, spicy and almost nutmeg-like flavour by New Year, fairly sharp but sweetens.
Pixie - Small apple with a big flavour. The parentage is unknown but is thought to be Cox Orange Pippin or Sunset. Juicer and crisper than a Cox.
Braeburn - New Zealand, 1952. Refreshing, crisp firm flesh and very commercially successful.
Also currently in stock; Egremont Russet, Bramley Seedling, Court Pendu Plat, Gloster, Comice pears and Concorde Pears.
Over 15 varieties of apples to try before you buy in the farm shop. We understand the importance of tasting and comparing apples before you make your purchase. Every apple variety is unique!
Raised at the Comice Horticole, Angers, France. First fruited in 1849 and introduced into Britain by Sir Thomas Dyke Acland 1858. One of the finest pears, it is grown commercially throughout the world and in a small scale in Britain. Pale yellow & juicy.
Howgate Wonder apples
Isle of Wight, 1915-16. A Blenheim Orange and Newton Wonder cross. A very large apple that can be quite sweet and pleasant when eaten fresh but basically a cooking apple.
Apple & pear season is in full swing and we have many different varieties in the shop this week.
New in this week:
Fashionable bright colour and juicy, crunchy texture - a well rounded apple!
One of the best cox-style varieties. Slightly more robust and sharper in flavour than Cox.
A handsome rich flavoured apple which is rarely grown due to horticultural difficulties so it is hard to find on the commercial market. A popular apple amongst our farm shop customers!
A crisp eater with a rich honeyed flavour.
Keep checking back on this page. We will be posting updates on when fruit will be arriving in the shop and what is going on seasonally at our farm.
