    Good afternoon, we are thinking of sharing our work lifestyle with people who love peace and quiet in the Kent countryside home of Charles Dickens and within 10 min drive to Rochester/Gravesend, we also have ewes with their baby lambs as of todays date, it is a working fruit farm but as of yet no work has started/fruit picking starts mid June, there is electric and water but no waste disposal. If anyone is interested or for more information please inbox me or call 07957393066.

    How much do you pay for fruit picking, or is it a pitch in lieu of wages ?

    This is our first year of motorhomes using the orchard so please bear with us, but it is in such a lovely part of Kent we want to share !!!!!! we have owned the orchard for around 4 years and we pick plums-pears-apples every year you can pick in lieu or pay a minimum fee of say £10.00 per night just to cover electric and water…..but thinking about it if you can pick, that would be a great help…maybe pop over for a night or two and see what you think.
