Here at Tom Adams Fruit Tree Nursery, we grow a range of organic, very rare heritage apple varieties, as well as modern varieties suitable for traditional orchards, small holdings and the home garden.
We specialise in hard to find heritage apple varieties from the English/Welsh borderlands and are slowly creating collections of local varieties from all over the country.

A Little About Us

We grow all our trees using agroforestry and permaculture principles and are certified organic by the Soil Association. The key to growing healthy trees is to have healthy soil. Our soil is fed by a range of green manures composted on-site and fed right back into the soil. This means we don’t need to apply artificial chemical fertilisers to keep our trees happy.

We are now officially Organic. The trees we sell from November 2020 will be certified Organic by the Soil Association.

A routine spray programme comprising organic seaweed extract and garlic oil is carried out throughout the growing season to help with pest and disease resistance as well as to promote strong healthy growth.
