We will be open from 11am Saturday 18th July for PYO and ready picked sales.  Prolific and Opal plums are now available. Please bring your own containers to pick in to. Payment can be made by either cash or card. There will be set routes marked out and though families are extremely welcome, children should not be allowed to wander on their own. The caravan site’s washroom will not be available for use. Looking forward to seeing you!!

Orchard update

Despite the lack of rain, the plums and apples are coming along well and we are likely to be open for business before the end of July so watch this space! In the current climate, we are having to make a few changes to how we operate to ensure things run smoothly and safely and we’ll share these with you nearer the time.

We have a Zoom Auction on Friday 3rd July at 8pm to raise money for our local church so if you want to join us and bid for a cream tea for 2 in the orchard (two available) or a Walsgrove hamper, just let me know!! Catalogues of lots will be emailed on Wednesday 1st July
