  • Welcome to English Cherry

    Welcome to the English Cherry Company! For four weeks every July and August, we pick delicious sweet red cherries from just under 2,000 cherry trees from our orchards in Bedfordshire. We sell our cherries through our farm shop, other local outlets, and for those further afield, in stylish gift boxes sent by next day courier.

    Beautifully presented with a rustic raffia tie and personalised message (if you wish!) our gift boxes of fresh cherries really do make the most novel, personal, delicious and healthy present, whatever the occasion. Perfect as a thank you, get well soon, anniversary, engagement or new baby present; our cherries are a gift with a difference.

    We are the archetypal family farm, run by two generations, in the picturesque village of Aspley Guise. We are passionate about the quality of our produce, customer care and attention to detail. To support the best of local, British and seasonal produce; look no further.

  • We are open!

    We are now open at the farm shop (9am-6pm daily) and in our laybys between Woburn Sands and Woburn, and Woburn Sands and Bow Brickhill (approx. 10am - 5pm daily). Please click here for directions to the farm.

    Please note that there is a road closure from 24th July onwards just before Aspley Guise Square from the M1 direction. If you are coming from the A421/Bedford, come via Salford where our signs will lead you to the farm. If coming from Ampthill way, follow the Woburn Wall to the T Junction at Woburn. Turn right to Woburn Sands and at the next roundabout turn right towards Aspley Guise. At the square turn left and we are just past the railway station.

  • Farming update

    It’s not just us who have been unhappy about the weather… the cherry trees have not been having a particularly fun time either! It has been a cocktail of tricky conditions for the trees this year. Over winter we had very mild temperatures, just when the trees need it to be very cold in order to vernalise. Over the blossom period, some varieties suffered from some prolonged frost and cold, wet conditions, which has led to a fair amount of bud failure, or “run off”. Sadly our outlets will be reduced in number this year as a result. 

  • Cherry sales outlets summer 2016

    This year we will be selling cherries from our farm shop in Aspley Guise, Woburn layby, Bow Brickhill Layby and Kings Cross Real Food Festival. Unfortunately due to the cold Spring, we have a limited crop this year so will not be able to sell our courier gift boxes of cherries. We are sorry to disappoint our loyal customers but hope you can make it to our farm shop instead. 

     

     

  • Picking Penny & Kordia

    We are currently picking varieties Penny and Kordia. Kordia is a dark super sweet cherry – very popular and we never seem to have enough of it. Penny is big and juicy, A redder cherry and not as super sweet but probably our favourite. Regina will be picked early August onwards. We are expecting a condensed harvest due to a smaller crop and the warm weather so we may only be open for 3 weeks! Panic buy now…  

Testimonials

  • Just wanted to let you know my order arrived safely today. My husband was absolutely delighted with his gift, although a little jealous as the wind and a hungry fledgling blackbird demolished his small crop! The cherries are absolutely delicious, the best we’ve ever tasted and worth every penny, I’m sure we’ll be regular customers.

    Mr and Mrs Flood

  • Cherries arrived safely.  My sister was delighted with the cherries and extra pleased to see they would be alright in the fridge for seven days. I saw your advert in the OVL magazine.
    Thank you.  Also thanks for the communication during the process.
