What to bring when you come to pick

You will require the following:

Scissors (to cut the fruit off the trees)

Hand sanitiser (for your own use)

Gloves (for your own safety)

Bags (to take your fruit away)

Change of Shoes (ground will be muddy due to impact by recent flood inundation)

Again this year because of the health restrictions you will be obliged to follow the social distancing regulations and should you be ill you will not be allowed to enter the property.  Please obey all signs which will be there for your own protection.


Oops! I have purchased too many mandarins – what to do now!!!

The following suggestions can help you to find a use for every last mandarin you purchase.
If you find you have too many to eat (you may need to keep some back from the kids), simply squeeze the mandarins for juice. The Satsuma mandarin is full of juice and will give a good supply which fortunately lasts for a week in the fridge once squeezed. Something for breakfast every morning.

If you are time poor and don’t have time to squeeze the Satsumas, simply pop them in the freezer as is, skin and all (no need to put them in a plastic femara bag.) In the summer months simply remove them from the freezer, cut them in half serving them frozen in the skin with or without ice cream. A frozen treat for the children and a delight when they are not available in the shops.

If you are creative you can make your own jam so that you have a supply all year round. Simply email us and we will send you a simple recipe.


You will not be able to resist, simply eat them all!!!!!!!!

Imperials have a much longer shelf life and can be kept in the fridge until ready to eat or kept in your fruit bowl.

They unfortunately do not make good juice, but they make a fantastic jam or marmalade. We have recipes available on request.
