Our pretty little orchard is ready for PYO!

from Friday 16 Sept until mid October (closing date tbc).


The orchard has its own little car park, just up Redmans Lane, at the back of the farm. You'll find fabulous, sweet, juicy, shiny red NORFOLK ROYALS as well as traditional COX APPLES.

Local Bramleys, pears and Kent Cobnuts will also be available.

PLEASE NOTE: THE ORCHARD MAY CLOSE IN VERY WET WEATHER. PLEASE PHONE TO CHECK.
 
 
If you haven't done so already, NOW is the time to order your fresh hop bines.

NEW SEASON LAVENDER HONEY
The bees were busy in the lavender fields throughout July and early August and we have a bumper yield of gorgeous lavender honey from the hives at Castle Farm. It's so special and has a very appreciative fan club. This unique honey speeds off the shelves! Perfect on crumpets for afternoon tea, or drizzled on a warm bowl of hearty porridge for breakfast!
CORN ON THE COB and PUMPKINS
Juicy, sweet cobs - locally grown - are available in the shop now.... and we'll very soon start harvesting our home-grown pumpkins and squashes which have ripened well in the recent sunny weather. The corn tastes great just with butter, but you could also try crumbling a little feta on top then sprinkling with paprika for that extra twist!
AUTUMNAL SCARVES and WARM WINTER BLANKETS
We are fresh back from the Autumn gift fairs and have handpicked a selection of beautiful scarves and blankets ready for you to cosy up in over the winter. The thick blankets and throws come in a selection of beautiful colours and are made in the finest English tradition. As always, we try to source an interesting range of tempting and unusual gifts to suit all tastes and ages - so you can start your Christmas shopping now!
Open daily
all year round
Monday - Saturday: 9am - 5pm
Sun & Bank Hols: 10am - 5pm
