Over time we have grown a wide range of soft fruit including Strawberries, Blackberries, Blueberries, Raspberries, Blackcurrents, and Redcurrents.
Today strawberries are the main focus which are grown under polythene tunnels to give them extra warmth through the english summer.
Pear varieties that are commercially grown are conference and comice. As with the eating apples the majority of these will be sold to supermarket but we also make Perry (Pear Cider) from these varieties.
Recently we have planted up some trial plots with Perry Pears. As with the bittersweet cider apples these have very strong flavour profiles with lots of tannin and interesting characteristics.
Different arable crops are grown on rotation to help preserve soil condition and diversity.
Crops are either sown in the autumn to over winter or in the spring ready to be harvested from mid summer.
