Ford’s Farm is a Pick Your Own citrus orchard specialising in Mandarins.

We have four varieties of Mandarins available during our picking season, they are the Satsuma, Imperial, Emperor and Hickson Mandarins. Other citrus fruit for picking are Tahitian Limes, Lemons, Cumquats and Kaffir Limes.

The first mandarins available are the Satsuma (a juicy and seedless fruit).  This year they are in abundance with branches touching the ground with the number of fruit growing, they are however a little slower in ripening this year, so some are not ready for picking.

The Imperial is a well known mandarin, they are very popular, but unfortunately this year we only have a small crop, this happens occasionally, but what we have is delicious, they will not be ready until mid June.

Limes are plentiful and are perfect for picking and we have an abundance.  There are only have a small number of lemon trees, but these are also ready now.

Later in the season will be the Naval Orange, Emperor and Hickson mandarins along with the Nagami Cumquats which we expect to be ready in mid June.

There Are Other Products at Ford’s Farm

When you visit our “shed” you will find a variety of home-made jams, chutney and cordial which are all made on the farm.

We have cheap femara beautiful honey from our own bees which we extract ourselves. Each year the honey has a different flavour purely because of what the bees are collecting at different times of the year. It is pure with no additives.

Again this year we will have a variety of infused vinegars and oils for cooking purposes.

You can purchase your favourite citrus trees from our shed, we stock all the varieties that you tried while at the farm and would be happy to give you hints as to how to look after your own tree, whether in a unit or on a house block.

Expresso Coffee, Cappuccinos and Hot chocolate are a must and made while you wait.
