  • 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, 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, our gift boxes of fresh cherries make the most novel, personal, delicious and healthy present. 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.

  • Gearing up for the Summer!

    We are just starting to get busier as the fields and hedges green up and the first suggestions of Spring emerge. The trees are currently looking in pretty good shape and all of them have now been netted to protect them from the hungry birds.

    The honey bees have been delivered and are already starting to do a wonderful job of pollinating the blossom. It is currently looking like we will have an earlier season this year - particularly if we enjoy a warm spring.

    Please subscribe to our seasonal reminder service at the bottom of this page to be kept up-to-date on the various farming activities and also to keep abreast of the anticipated start and end dates for the picking season.

  • Farming update

    As we emerge relatively unscathed from winter we are counting our blessings that we were left untouched by the menace of Storm Doris. Over the winter we have taken the difficult decision to replace 150 of our young trees, following consultation with other orchards who have endured a similar lack of success with a new variety, Techlovan.  More positively we have enjoyed considerably more ‘chill hours’ this winter than last, which (fingers crossed!) will help to create good quality buds and keep disease and infection under control. We now need a nice warm and sunny spring – particularly during blossom time – to encourage strong bee activity and, consequently good pollination throughout the orchard. Keep an eye on our Twitter feed (@englishcherry) to be kept up-to-date on progress as the season approaches.

  • Cherry sales outlets

    During our picking season, we sell our cherries in our farm shop, various roadside locations, a few farmers markets and in beautiful gift boxes sent by next day courier delivery. We can do also do branded gift boxes for businesses as a novel and healthy corporate gift.

    Please check back as the season (July-August) approaches for more specific details.

     

     

  • Blossom walk – Monday 17th April 2017

    As we approach spring, our thoughts turn to blossom time. A simply beautiful time of year, which needs to be celebrated just as much as much as our appreciation of the fruit itself. As we have done in previous years, we will be hosting a blossom walk which will take place on Monday 17th April 2017 (from 2pm – 4pm).

    Please bring a camera and wellington boots (cleaned please to ensure that we do not spread soil-borne disease). It is a great opportunity to roam our orchards, admire the blossom and chat to the growers.

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.
