Hilter Fruit Farm
Hilter Fruit Farm is situated on a South facing, sandy soil site in beautiful countryside on the Gloucestershire Herefordshire border, (you can see the Cotswolds to the front, MayHill to the side and the Malverns to the rear) and runs alongside the old Hereford - Gloucester canal; currently home to numerous Geese, Swans, Coots, Moorhens, Herons, Buzzards, the odd Cormorant or two, Kingfishers, Woodpeckers and thousands of Frogs.
The orchard was planted in 1977 and Richard & Jenni have been growing apples here since 1984, when the only apples grown were Cox, Spartan, Golden Delicious, Discovery and Bramleys.
Since then we have diversified into Asparagus, Strawberries, Raspberries and Apple Juice and planted a whole range of new varieties of apple, as well as Pears. Newly planted and available in 2010 are APRICOTS, a first for this area.
