We are delighted to be taking part in Agroforestry Open Weekend 2024
Our farm was a mixed Arable, Sheep & Hay operation but is now Sheep, Hay and Walnuts. We retail all our nuts direct to the public along with grafted nut trees.
We have the only full Walnut Drying, Cracking & Shelling line in the UK and advise others on walnut growing.
Our orchards are Sylvopasture, the main orchard or 4.4Ha has trees nominally spaced at 10m x 10m and a newer one planted winter 2022/23 is 2.15 Ha and is at 8m x 8m. We have drip irrigation for establishing the new trees which will remain for 8-10 years.
Trees are all guarded to allow sheep to graze, we make our own weld mesh guards and use machined posts.
Here are some photos of what we do:
