Located on the outskirts of Faversham, Brogdale Farm is a hidden gem – well known amongst visitors around the country and horticulturists nationwide – but often relatively undiscovered by Faversham locals. Hopefully all that is about to change with Brogdale Farm’s support of Fiver Fest Faversham. With seven businesses at Brogdale running some amazing special offers – we’re sure their involvement will encourage plenty of shoppers and visitors to check out Brogdale Farm and see what it has to offer.
Home to the National Fruit Collection
Brogdale is set in a gorgeous location with hundreds of acres of orchards which are home to the National Fruit Collection – the largest collection of temperate fruits in the world – right here on Faversham’s doorstep! They have examples of every type of apple, pear, cherry, quince, medlar and Brogdale Collections is the charity based at Brogdale Farm created to enable the public to access these orchards and the Collections. The site is home to some amazing events as well as tours of the orchards and there are also great educational facilities for children such as a Wildlife, Weather and Music Gardens and a playground too.
Did you know there’s also a cracking little miniature railway which pootles round Brogdale’s orchards and is a massive favourite amongst children of all ages! We can’t wait for it to open again once the pandemic is over.
Great independent businesses
The Market Place at Brogdale Farm is a lovely large courtyard bathed all day in sunlight and a lovely spot to enjoy a bite to eat or pop to one of the shops. The Courtyard is a family-run café serving delicious freshly prepared breakfasts, lunches and cream teas with plans to soon open in the evenings too. The Tiddly Pomme is the Market Place’s gorgeous shop selling a wide range of fruit-related products and gifts including local ciders, fruit juices, preserves and liqueurs.
Brogdale Farm is home to Country Practice which specialises in offering a delightful range of therapies and treatments for your emotional and physical well-being – including their very popular hot stone treatments and massages. For even more pampering, Vicki Lord Hair has recently moved to Brogdale Farm and she offers a complete range of hair styling services.
Grow at Brogdale is known nationwide for growing and selling a terrific range of fruit trees and other plants – many grafted from the unique trees at the National Fruit Collections at Brogdale – making them very special indeed. They are currently open for appointments only.
