Chegworth Valley is a family owned and run fruit farm situated in the heart of the Kent countryside. An initial planting of around 15 acres of apples and pears was planted in the mid 1980’s with soft fruit such as raspberries and strawberries during the early 1990’s. To begin with this was supplied to major supermarkets and wholesalers, whose focus was on perfectly sized & shaped fruit, rather than the taste and quality. It soon became clear that this was not the way in which the family wanted to work and so the change to supplying direct to the customer and to independent shops and retailers began!
