Oldfield Perry 2021

We had been waiting for some years for the Oldfield pear trees to bear a good crop of fruit and in 2021 we struck lucky. We were also blessed with help at harvest time in the shape of Steve and Jana, who managed to pick up the fruit twice as quickly as Clare and myself, and without complaining about aching backs or stiff knees.

The pears came from three trees in a young Perry pear orchard at The Callow, and yielded about 140 litres.
