  • Welcome to English Cherry

    Welcome to the English Cherry Company! For 4 weeks every July & 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, roadside stalls and local farm shops. For those further afield, we can send larger quantities of cherries by courier.

    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. Look out for our blossom walk in April/May for an opportunity to come and explore the farm.

  • 2020 Cherry Season

    Dear Cherry Lovers

    We hope that you and your families are staying safe and well in these disconcerting times. We are thinking of our community at this time when many of our customers fall into the vulnerable category.

    We do not yet know what this year's cherry season will hold but we will be monitoring government advice to ensure that you are still able to access cherries whilst keeping the safety of our staff, customers and families paramount.

    Very best wishes

    Liz, Rupert, Angie and Charlie + Sophie & Peppa

  • M1 Bridge/Road Closure

    Road Closure – Please note that the bridge over the M1 between Salford and Woburn Sands is currently closed. 

  • 2020 Blossom Walk

    We hope that all of our customers are staying safe in these disconcerting times. We are sorry to say that we will not be holding our annual blossom walk this year for obvious reasons. Instead, we will share some pictures of our beautiful blossom on Instagram and Facebook. Wild cherries on roadsides are currently in bloom so look out for the very tall trees with white blossom if you are on any journeys! We will be monitoring government advice as we approach the cherry season and be doing everything we can to make our cherries accessible for everyone whilst keeping safety first. Please take care!   

  • Farming Update – Spring time

    The winter was a fairly soggy one but the trees have come out of hibernation looking fit and strong. The bud always looks magnificent at this time of year and the bees are busying themselves in the warm April weather pollinating the flowers. We scurried to put the nets up (2 weeks early) before Boris declared the lockdown. Two wonderful friends stepped in to help, alongside family, to get the nets up in record time – all whilst maintaining a safe distance! Frosts are always a threat at this time of year and the farm sits in a “frost pocket” meaning that it is generally 2-3 degrees colder than the weather forecast suggests. Our rain covers can be pulled over to help protect half of the orchard but they do not fare so well in the wind so it is always a difficult decision whether to pull them across or not. The trees get lots of foliar feed (fertiliser sprayed straight onto the leaves) from now onward to give them the nutrients they need at the right time of fruit growth. By early June, we can be more sure of what kind of crop we will have, but for now it is looking good!
