Our Producers of Fruit Juice

Perry Court Farm

Perry Court Farm has been growing wonderful fruit and vegetables in a responsible and environmentally friendly way for three generations now. Traditional methods of farming have been passed down, and mixed with modern know-how on sustainable agricultural practises, to give a way of producing food that really works in the long run. Perry Court Farm now produces over 200 different varieties of English crops the majority of which we are able to supply direct to the consumer through our Farmers' Markets and farm shop. The Farm shop is located in the Stour Valley in the finest Kent countryside, surrounded by traditional apple and pear orchards, fields of fresh vegetables and summer fruits, all of which are available to buy in the farm shop. Perry Court Farm Apple Crisps are made using a completely natural drying process; warm air is blown over the slices of apple for hours and hours until crisp and scrumptious. They are then packaged quickly to keep them like this. This slow drying method keeps all the goodness of a fresh apple in the crisps, but allows you to keep it much longer (drying is a natural way of preserving fruit, used since the Ancient Egyptians). Perry Court Farm uses traditional English varieties of apple, selecting the best ones from over 100 different cultivars, including Cox’s Orange Pippin, Laxtons Fortune and Ribstone Pippin.

The Cheesemakers of Canterbury

The Cheesemakers of Canterbury specialise in making Ashmore Cheese, a naturally rinded hard cheese made from unpasteurised British Friesian cows milk. The milk is collected fresh in the mornings from Mr Castle's Debden Farm at Petham, near Canterbury, with our own milk tanker. The Ashmore Cheese is handmade from a traditional recipe at the newly refurbished site that was Dargate Dairy at Lamberhurst Farm, Dargate. The cheese is made by Jane Bowyer, Teresa and their merry band of "blessed cheesemakers"! The recipe itself began its life in a textbook by the North of Scotland College of Agriculture, especially designed for smallholders.
