  • 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.

  • 2021 Cherry Season

    Dear Cherry Lovers

    The 2021 cherry season will be starting around 12th July.

    Due to a limited crop, we will only be selling our ready picked English cherries at the Farm Shop (Aspley Guise), Woburn - Woburn Sands layby, Ampthill layby and Shefford layby. Please check back nearer the time for exact opening dates for each outlet.

    Very best wishes

    The Cherry Team (inc. Sophie & Peppa)

    PS Please note we only sell ready-picked fruit.

  • M1 Bridge/Road now open!

    The bridge over the M1 between Salford and Woburn Sands is finally open! 

  • Cherry varieties

    We have several varieties which ripen in succession. They all have their different tastes and qualities. We will update here as different varieties become available throughout the picking season. 

  • Farming Update

    This year’s crop has been seriously checked by the weather however what remains should therefore taste even better! Kordia, our most popular variety is actually looking the best of all. Other varieties will be Vanda, Penny, Regina and Sweetheart (very little Sylvia and Fertard this year). We expect to open around 12th July but check back for more information nearer the time.
