Growing Organic Fruit
Ethical Fruit Farm:
...is our farm that grows certified organic apples & pears.
The farm consists of 17 hectares of organic apples & pears, sited on one farm located in Gloucestershire.
The farms are pioneering and market leaders on a number of fronts:
- The first UK apple farm to plant a number of new disease resistant varieties (so reducing the need for inputs to fight disease)
- The first UK apple farm to have achieved the Soil Association Ethical Trade certification in 2009/2010
- The first UK apple farm to attain Natures Choice Gold (Tesco's own standard)
Ethical Fruit Farm is our own 17 hectare orchard in Gloucestershire, growing English organic apples. Our farm is managed by father & son team John & Mike Thorn.
