  • 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.

  • Final variety Sweetheart – just a few days to go!

    We are now onto our final variety of Sweetheart at the farm. Not necessarily the biggest, but packed with flavour. Sweetheart is a redder cherry, similar to Penny. With just a few more rows to pick the season is drawing to a close! 

  • Farming update Summer 2018

    After blossom time the fruit set initially looked good but if you recall the cold and wet spell that we had in April, this turned out to affect cell division. This meant that some of the fruilets on our earlier varieties failed to grow and fell of the tree during June (known as “run off” or the “June drop”). Disappointing as it was, the remaining fruit has been great quality. The relentless sunshine has made sure the cherries are packed with flavour and we have been irrigating the trees every other day to keep them happy. This will continue as long as it is dry as the trees are now busy laying down bud for next year’s crop and we still need to look after them. 

  • 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!
