Chegworth Valley to plant another 8,000 trees to satisfy demand for fruit and juice

Kent organic apple grower Chegworth Valley is planting 8,000 trees over 2.5ha this winter to keep up with demand for its fresh fruit and farm-pressed juice.

As well as established varieties of Cox, Braeburn and Egremont Russet, the less familiar Boskoop Rouge is also being planted alongside the recently developed early variety Galmac and the newly launched Cheerfull Gold.

Both Chegworth's fresh fruit and juice are sold direct through its two London shops as well as independent stores and farmers' markets across London and Kent.
