Frequently Asked Questions

Is your farm ‘Pick Your Own?’
No it is not, we pick and weigh the cherries and sell them to our customers in different size punnets
or baskets. 
Are your cherries grown organically?
No they are not, but they are grown to UK standards, and any chemicals used are kept to a minimum.  All the fruit is picked by hand to ensure no harm is done to the trees.

Can I recycle the packaging?
Yes! In 2020 we made the decision to change from plastic to recyclable and compostable packaging. 
Why is the cherry season so short?
This is because once the cherries are picked off a tree they don’t grow back until the following year. Once cherries are ripe they must be picked or else they rot on the trees in the heat. They also do not ripen once picked, and so we will only pick when the cherries are ready to eat.
Can you cook with cherries?
Yes you absolutely can, please visit our recipes page for ideas. 
Do you sell cherries for making jam?
Yes we do, they are cherries from the same trees as all our other cherries however these may be smaller, damaged or stalkless but just as delicious!
Do you post cherries?
No, unfortunately we do not have the facilities to take postal orders. 
Where are the cherries grown?
They are grown here on our family run farm in Ledbury. 
How do you pick the cherries?
Every single cherry is picked by hand to make sure that they are not damaged and very importantly so that the stalks stay on the fruit, this keeps them fresh longer. 
How long can I keep the cherries for?
They are best eaten as soon as possible however you can store them in the fridge for a few days or they can be frozen. 
How do you get the stones out?
You can buy a cherry stoner or by using a knife and cutting the cherries in half.
