Our Orchard

Thirteen years ago when we took the plunge into orchading, we started literally with a bare canvas. Today we have approx 1500 trees the bulk of them have been producing fruit for 8+ years, they comprise 17 apple, 21 plum and 4 pear varieties. And we are now able to supply quality organically grown fruit to the local market.
