RENTING - HOW RENTING A TREE WORKS
Each year, you rent a tree, or trees on an annual (Jan - Dec) basis.
You now need to add your name to our waiting list so that you can rent a tree for 2017 as we have just allocated the last of the trees for the 2016 cherry season. We will have plenty become available again after the 2016 harvest so just click here and add your details to our waiting list and you will be able to rent a tree in October 2016, ready for 2017. Please accept our apologies for the long wait for a tree, however it just shows how popular we are!
We take every measure possible to ensure that your tree produces its optimum yield each year because if you’re happy with the end results you’ll be happy to continue the relationship which we will build. We look after the health and well being of your tree and grow the cherries in a responsible and professional manner as befits our 23 years growing experience.
Throughout the year you will receive, via email or post, 6 newsletters updating you on what we’re doing in the orchard and how this year’s cherry crop is looking. These updates will be most frequent from April to July to keep you fully informed as to how the crop is developing once the flowering period is over. This will also ensure that you’re aware of which week in July your cherries will be ripe and ready to be picked. You will have a period of between 7-10 days in which you will be able to come and pick your cherries.
During flowering in late April we will also invite you to come and enjoy a blossom walk on the relevant weekend so that you can walk the orchard, enjoy the blossom, see the bees at work, have a picnic, and really feel a part of owning a small part of our beautiful countryside and seeing nature at work. We also have a selection of some of the best local producers selling their produce in our farmers market section and have a hog roast and licenced bar for you to enjoy.
You will also be able to email me at any time about a particular point of interest to yourself, how the crop is looking or any other relevant issue. We really would like this experience to be personal and enjoyable, and one that you really benefit from and feel fully encompassed within.
