  • 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 cherries in bulk 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 our for our blossom walk in April/May for an opportunity to come and explore the farm.

  • 2018 Cherry Season!

    We expect the 2018 cherry season to be much later than 2017 due to the long cold winter. Current expectations are that we will start picking around 18th July but sign up to our newsletter (at the bottom of the home page) or check back on the website for updates nearer the time.

  • Farming update Spring 2018

    The cherries have enjoyed a long cold winter with plenty of “chill hours” which helps with vernalisation and is a good indicator for this year’s crop. The cherries do not like soggy feet however so we are hoping that the sun will come out and dry up the land. In late March we got the nets up in record time (just before the dreadful weather of Easter weekend)! We must finally be getting the hang of it after 12 years! As the bud swells and the blossom comes out we hope for warm weather and no severe frosts which could kill the flowers and reduce the crop. We hope to see you all for the blossom walk on 7th May! 

  • 2018 Blossom Walk

    **Updated – due to the cold and rain over the last week the blossom has gone over faster than usual. It will unfortunately be past it’s peak. Please do still come for a walk around the farm – the weather forecast looks good!**

    Please come and enjoy the farm in full bloom on bank holiday Monday 7th May, from 2pm – 4pm. It will be an opportunity to see the trees in bloom, have a lovely walk in the countryside and have a chat to the growers. We will also be available to talk about employment opportunities for the 2018 season. 

  • Gift boxes of cherries by mail order

    It is with regret that we will not be sending out our gift boxes of cherries by courier delivery this year (except for bulk orders over the phone (10 boxes +). The manpower, expense and regulatory issues of selling cherries online are sadly too onerous for a business running such a short selling season. We hope that you will be able to make a visit to the farm or one of our other outlets instead to collect your fresh cherries!
