Period Fruit and Nuts
The Company has orchards on 3 farms with over 440 period fruit trees, most varieties dating to before 1660. Surplus fruit is sold in season. We can currently offer around 35 varieties of apples, over 10 varieties of pear, 5 of cherry plus various plums, greengages black and white bullaces, mulberry, medlars, quince, service and walnut. For winemakers we grow cider apples and perry pears. We also grow a range of period gooseberries and roses. Both sites are farmed organically although not certified due to the high administration cost.
