We maintain your tree for you throughout the year and let you know when you can come and pick your cherries.  The flavour, shine and texture of our freshly picked cherries is completely different to what you might be used to from the shops. Buying cherries directly from our orchard is also possible. Contact us to check which varieties are in season and available. Cherries from our shed will have been picked within the last 24 to 36 hours.

Please complete the form on our "Rent a Tree Now" page before making payment. If we don't have this information, then we don't know who payments are coming from!

Picking Tips




Cherries should always be picked with the stalk still attached to the cherry. This helps the cherry to keep far longer than a cherry that is picked stalkless. The best method is to take the stalk at the base between your thumb and forefinger and twist it back.

Buds! Buds are very important to the ability of a cherry tree to bear fruit. For this reason when you pick your cherries, it is best to ensure the bud does not break off the tree. That way it is still there to bear you fruit the following year should you wish to continue your rental.

For fairness to everyone all picking will be supervised, so we will be on hand to help you with the correct picking technique and also to make sure individuals do not pick from the tree of other rentees.
