Fabulous fruitful harvest from our orchard

The Middleton Hall orchard has started bearing masses of fruit for the kitchens, residents and the Stables shop.

Thom from the Estates team has included some informative signs with the fruit, describing look, flavour and characteristics as well as the provenance of some of our apples.

We have many varieties of apple, pear, plum and cherry throughout the orchard as well as soft fruit. Take a look at the old Bramley apple tree, pictured below in blossom from the Spring,  when you next pass, it’s a bumper crop year!
