Plum picking is starting!!

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

 

Fruit update May 2020

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.

Fruit update

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.

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.
