Fruit this year

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.

Happy Christmas

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.

This week’s opening times –

Monday 1st October 11.30am – 6pm

Tuesday 2nd October┬áto Friday 5th October 11am – 6pm

Saturday 6th October 9am – 5pm

We are looking forward to our apple day on Saturday October 13th when we anticipate about 50 varieties of apple to be available for you to try. We will also have our apple press in action. If you would like to bring the equivalent of up two carrier bags of your own apples and are happy to cut them up when you get here, we’d be able to juice them for you. Bring your own clean containers. Juice only lasts for three days in the fridge but I see no reason why you couldn’t freeze it.
Otherwise there’s always our juice you can taste and buy if you like it!

Damsons are now finished. They have been incredibly popular this year.
Plums are coming to an end but we’ll still have some for another week. The high winds have stripped some trees but others have escaped.
Apple varieties available are increasing nearly daily. Cox in particular are a good size and a very good condition this year, as are the bramleys.
We have our Macmillan Coffee Morning this coming Saturday so why not combine fruit buying with coffee and cake?
