We are leading growers of strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. Kent – the Garden of England - is famous for its wonderful, fresh and flavoursome soft fruit. My family have been growing berries on the greensand slopes overlooking the Weald for five generations. The farm has been sustained through good farming practice since my great-grandfather planted his first strawberry crop in 1893.
The sunny, south facing slopes, free-draining soils and sheltering hedges create ideal conditions to grow berries. Our woodlands, hedges and windbreaks are homes to a range of wildlife and flora, and our many beehives ensure our crops and nearby wildflowers buzz with activity on warm days.
Strawberries like the long days of summer to ripen properly, and we leave them on the plant as long as possible to ripen. Tunnels are used to protect the plants from the wind and rain to ensure they are not affected by rots and moulds, and we only spray when absolutely necessary. You can be confident that we are accredited to the highest production standards by the charity Linking Environment and Farming (LEAF)– for more information see www.leafmarque.co.uk
We select the best varieties for flavour and to crop continuously from May until October.
