Summer

Time for cherry harvesting and apple thinning. Cherry harvesting commences during the first week in December with the variety 'Merchant'. Each of our other eleven varieties follow in succession. All cherries are hand picked.

From our orchard shop you are able to purchase ready picked fruit. We also offer you the experience of picking your own straight from the tree. 

Thinning is the removal of surplus fruit from the trees and is done in order to regulate the size of the fruit. It is also an opportunity to remove misshapen or damaged fruit.
