Chegworth Valley is a family owned and run fruit farm situated in the heart of the Kent countryside, not far from the village of Harrietsham. Established by the Deme family in 1983, the farm had originally been a dairy farm as part of the Leeds Castle Estate.
An initial planting of around 15 acres
of apples and pears was planted in the mid 1980ís with soft fruit such
as raspberries and strawberries following during the early 1990ís. To
begin with this was supplied to major supermarkets and wholesalers,
whose focus was on perfectly sized & shaped fruit, rather than the
taste and quality. It soon became clear that this was not the way in
which the family wanted to work and so the change to supplying direct to
the customer and to independent shops and retailers began!
Today, the family farm over 300 acres including apples, pears, soft fruits, salads & leaves as well as producing an award-winning range of farm-pressed juices.
