This is proving to be a very early season for the fruit and we now even have Victoria plums, about 3 weeks ahead of the usual date we start picking! Some of the Bramley apples are now ready, as are the Katy eating apples.
We are open each day 11 – 5pm. However, on Monday 10th August we will only open at 1pm but will remain open until 7pm.
We are open 11 – 5pm daily
Plums available at the moment are Opals, Swans, Purple Pershores, Yellow Pershores.
Grenadier cooking apples are also now ready.
We look forward to seeing you!
We are open 10am – 5pm daily.
PYO and ready picked Opal, Prolific and Czar plums. Ready picked Heron and Swan plums.
Buy British – Buy Local!!
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!!
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
Hi, It has been a while since I last posted anything. Last year was a non event. We didn’t open our little shop at all and just about had enough fruit to fill our freezer. This year things are looking a lot better. The fruit has set well but will we be able to sell it? Who knows what the situation will be by the end of July but we are hoping for the best. The blossom has been lovely and the orchard is looking great – we have had plenty of time to tend to it! We hope that you are all keeping well and look forward to seeing you later in the year.
The apples have been hit nearly as badly as the plums. There are a few on some trees and though we are not opening our shop, if you want to check availability beforehand, we’re happy to serve you if we know in advance that you are coming.
This coming weekend, August 17th and 18th should have been our Plum Weekend. As we have no plums this year, we are having to cancel this event.
Sadly there are very few plums this year so we won’t be opening until the apples are ready which will be mid August. Apples are more abundant though not in the quantities we have had in recent years. The frost didn’t affect the orchard – it was the cold winds from the east. Hope to see you later in the summer.
Paul and Margaret at Walsgrove Farm send you Christmas greetings. Whatever you are doing today, we wish you happiness and good health. Your custom throughout the season has been much appreciated and it has been good to see so many of you again this year.
