Welcome

Welcome to the Colwall Orchard Group website.


Orchards form an important part of the landscape within and surrounding the village of Colwall, in Herefordshire.


They are places where people and nature exist in harmony - indeed a mutually supportive relationship. Magical places to delight and uplift the spirit throughout the seasons.


For many years Colwall was a productive centre for the growing, harvesting and processing of fruit. Whilst the economics of orchards have changed we continue to explore ways to sustain this wonderful part of our nature heritage. 


We want orchards to remain an important part of the Colwall landscape bringing benefits for people and nature.


Thank you for visiting our website which we hope that you'll enjoy. We'd love to have your feedback so please feel free to email us, or better still come to visit us in Colwall.

Colwall Orchard Group exists to restore, promote and celebrate traditional orchards.


We do this by 

practical management of new and veteran orchards;  through regular social events, activities and education sessions; 

by processing and selling our orchard produce;
