New Course for Cotswold AONB

We have gained funding from the Cotswold AONB to run courses on walnut growing

How to Grow English Walnuts for Profit

A comprehensive introduction to growing English Walnuts (Juglans regia) as a commercial crop.

The course is aimed at new or existing growers who wish to establish an orchard of cultivated walnuts for retail, there is no set minimum size for a commercial orchard, we would consider 20+ trees to be a reasonable small orchard.

The course covers site and cultivar selection, planting, growing and then harvest and markets for the nuts.  It is funded by the Cotswold AONB under their Farming in Protected Landscapes fund and as such is free to residents of the AONB who wish to establish a walnut orchard in the AONB.

The first two courses will be run as 2 x ½ days and will be on site at Burmington Farm, CV36 5AR on the edge of the Cotswold AONB.  We have a large orchard of English walnuts and other species of walnuts as well as harvesting and processing machinery.
