A family run Cotswold farm offering local produce and an independent business enterprise

Hayles Fruit Farm covers approximately 100 acres of picturesque countryside on the outskirts of the Cotswold market town of Winchcombe, Gloucestershire. With origins back to 1880 the land, along with 4 other fruit farms on the edge of the town, was initially planted with apples & Cob nuts under the instruction of Lord Sudeley. More than 130 years later Hayles Fruit Farm is the only one to survive!
 
Farmed by the Harrell family since the 1950’s it has, as you might imagine, seen many changes - not least in the form of diversification. That said the task of growing, producing and marketing top quality fruit remains paramount. Over the years the range of crops grown has been expanded and now includes apples, pears, plums, strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries and of course the original Cob nuts. Whilst the farmshop produces an important outlet for the sale of this produce we also have excellent working relationships with a number of local retail outlets - including Warners Budgens and the Midcounties Co-op - both of whom have for a number of years marketed our goods under their local produce lines.
 
Here on the farm diversification continues to play a major role. The farmshop offers our visitors some great tasting local produce, a delicious lunch can be enjoyed in the ‘Orchard’ (our Restaurant and Tearoom) and other on-site activities to checkout including a nature trail, Pick Your Own Fruit (in season), clay pigeon shooting and coarse fishing.
 
We also specialise in producing an extensive range of Apple Juice & Cider. We only use fruit from our own orchards in order to monitor the quality from tree to bottle. Our Apple Juice is made using single variety dessert apples with each Juice varying in sweetness. Our Badger’s Cider is a favourite with our visitors and local restaurants and pubs.
 
Whether you’re just passing through or want to use our campsite as a base from which to explore the fantastic countryside & many local attractions you’re very welcome.
