Update 2nd September 2021
2021 Cherry Tree renters will be contacted shortly about reserving their tree for next year, with the 2022 book opening on the 1st of October. We are welcoming Apple and Cobnut Tree renters to the orchard this month and an email has been sent with picking details to these renters. As always, please email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries.
We are a small, independent fruit and nut farm primarily supplying the wholesale market although private sales are welcomed too. We follow ‘best practice’ Assured Farm Produce methods working with Hutchinsons Ltd, although we do not carry the certificates. We are also a member of the Kentish Cobnuts Association.
The main products we grow are cobnuts, cherries and apples. To see further details of each of these please click here.
Collaboration with local photographer
For the 2021 season, we’re very excited to be linking up with award-winning local photographer Georgina Edwards who has visited the farm on a number of occasions this summer to do photo shoots and has really enjoyed working in the beautiful surroundings of our orchards. To that end, she is launching the Orchard Sessions, an opportunity to have individual or family portraits taken when you visit the farm either at blossom time or harvest time. This would make a wonderful keepsake or addition to a rental tree gift for that extra special person.
Don’t take our word for it! Follow this link to see Georgina’s amazing work and register for priority booking: https://www.georginaedwardsphotography.co.uk/The-Orchard-Sessions

Rent a fruit tree – the perfect gift
Bentinck Farm is now offering lovers of really fresh fruit and nuts the chance to rent their own tree for a year. You can choose from apple, cherry and cobnut trees or select a combination. There are several varieties of each!
These trees will be managed alongside our own to ensure they get the same high standard of care and cultivation. All you need to do is come and pick your own fruit in the pleasant surroundings of this scenic farm in West Kent. We are based just 5 miles from Tunbridge Wells and within easy reach of multiple wonderful attractions in Kent and Sussex.
All fruit can be picked from the ground (no need for ladders!). Fruit handling and picking guidance will be available on request. You will be able to harvest your crop during a designated harvest period which is determined nearer the time as we see how the crop is progressing.
All you have to do is click on one of the pictures below and this will take you to our range of varieties, descriptions, tree numbers and cart options. Once subscribed you will receive regular email updates and newsletters to keep you informed as to how the season is progressing. Renting a tree is a fun and rewarding way of experiencing the best of British fruit, fresh from the tree.
