The walled garden is looked after by our staff and volunteers in partnership with members of the Bovey Tracey Climate Action group.
We now produce a wide range of fruit and vegetables.
The orchard was planted up in the winter of 1999/2000 with 150 apple trees. A few of these have been replaced with damson trees, so we now have a mixed orchard.
In October 2014 about 6 tons of apples were picked and pressed into delicious apple juice and made into cider.
