Visited the orchards at Brogdale really fabulous experience. Went on a short tractor ride in a cart to look at the fruit trees and had a good talk from a fruit guide from Brogdale staff.

A one hour tour turned into two hours, tasting plums and apples - extremely knowledgeable guide and a very pleasant walk. Will definitely return in the Spring - maybe several times to catch the different blossoms. Good cafe and shops too.
