Little Stour Orchard was established in 2011 and is owned by Sarah and Michael Bowers. We live in a lovely part of Kent near the coastal towns of Ramsgate, Broadstairs & Margate. Our ten-acre apple orchard is a bit further inland in the hamlet of West Stourmouth in an area that is perfect for growing fruit. This is where we grow our three popular varieties of English apple - Cox, Discovery and Bramley.
We are lucky in that the orchard was already mature when we took it over from a very experienced apple grower. We want to manage the land naturally, allowing wild flowers to flourish and encouraging insects such as bees to thrive in the orchard. Consequently, we do not spray our trees with pesticides or herbicides.Next page
