The Kent Website since 1999
Information about the Brogdale Collections in Faversham below. Brogdale plays home to the National Fruit Collections and is one of the largest collections of fruit varieties in the world and amongst other contains Kentish Apples. It is however far more than a living museum. This link for the The Kent Food Directory.
Brogdale is a very real and living part of the Kent fruit industry.
Brogdale sells and promotes fruit and welcomes visitors to the new fruit shop where it's possible to purchase fruit and fruit products, many from the collection. A number of events are held on the site where you can choose from a vast range of local fruit and learn more about what the collection is doing.
The festivals and events will celebrate British fruit and encourage people to discover a wider variety of delicious heritage as well as to eat and grow more fruit at home. Yearly festivals include:
There is something for everyone to enjoy at the festivals and events including cookery demonstrations, live music, gardening talks, miniature railway rides, tractor trailer tours, children’s entertainment, fruit to taste and take home, fruit identification and growing advice plus much more.
And if a visit to Brogdale encourages you to want to grow fruit at home then there are a number of courses on planning a fruit garden, growing and pruning which run throughout the year.
If you are looking for unusual, rare or traditional Kent fruit Brogdale is the place to visit. At different times during the year you can find up to 100 different types of apple, pears, soft fruits and much more. The new Brogdale shop also stocks a wide range of vintage and new gifts.
Fresh fruit is only available in season and if you want more information about what is available when contact Brogdale direct.
