Martin Fermor's father came to Perry Court after the 2nd World War. Martin planted up a huge orchard of apples and pears - they currently have over 150 varieties. They bring many of the more unusual varieties to market on Apple Day in October. They also grow cherries, plums, soft fruit and have successfully trialed nectarines, apricots and peaches.
The farm also producers a huge range of salad and vegetable crops. They don't use any fertilisers or crop sprays at all, relying on a traditional rotation system.
Son Charles has developed apple & pear crisps - baked not fried, and totally delicious.
