The Neaves family are third generation berry people and have been growing fruit since 1941, when Bryan’s father Archie brought Little Sharsted Farm in Kent. Now one of the South-East’s largest fruit growers due to their location and ideal brick earth soil the farm is one of the earliest in the British cherry season. The farm won Top Fruit Grower of the Year in the 2018 Horticulture Business Awards
“The cherry blossom in April is truly stunning and a few months later when the cherries are perfectly ready to pick it really is all hands to the pump. Each and every cherry is selected and picked by hand as a family business my children and their cousins all help out” says Sarah Neaves.
