Meet Baretilt Farm

Hawkhurst, Kent

Chris Levett is the 8th generation of the Levett family to farm in the Weald of Kent. Traditionally the farms back then were mixed farms with a focus on hops. During the 70's and 80's there was a significant move away from hops and into fruit growing which is the core of the business today. Chris grows mainly apples and pears on 100 acres, but in the last five years has seen the huge increase in demand for English cherries. Now growing 15 acres with another 5 acres being planted this winter. Chris also grows raspberries and blackberries, both of which you can also find on our shop during the season. Chris values all the little insects and predators in the orchards as these are much more effective than chemicals in tackling pests. He even has little earwig houses dotted around the farm! When not looking after everything on the farm Chris loves spending time with his wife Holly and two boys George and Henry, taking a stroll round the orchards especially when they are in full bloom. >*‘I think the whole concept of Farmdrop is amazing. It's linking customers direct with the farmers. Fresh really does mean fresh’* **Chris Levett, Baretilt Farm**
