West Bradley Orchards is famous for its Pick Your Own weekends which occur during the month of September every year. These weekends give the general public the opportunity to visit a working apple farm for free, to pick and purchase their own apples straight from the tree ready for storage at home or immediate eating. 

The Clifton-Brown family welcomes visitors every year and invites you to bring a picnic and spend the day at the farm; take a walk through the orchards, pick apples at your leisure and enjoy a family day out. 

There is a fantastic selection of eating and cooking apples to choose from, with over 15 varieties, both traditional and new. West Bradley is also home to three delicious pear varieties.

A full list of the apple and pear varieties available can be found here.
