Sustainability

Damson

  • Our Damson are not sprayed. 
  • Our trees are rigorously pruned annually and the cuttings are used to grow more trees. 
  • Irrigation water comes from the orchards bore. 

Food Waste

  • In the kitchen, all plum waste from frozen whole plums post cooking goes to a local pig farmer to be used as stock food
