Are you managing a traditional fruit or nut orchard in Somerset? Do you have an old orchard that is not being managed at present? I'm looking for a number of sites to study as part of a Masters dissertation in Sustainable Horticulture and Food Production this Summer. I'm interested in hearing from you about your current management practices (or your benign neglect).

Is anyone looking at forest garden/agroforestry opportunities in their orchard? Do you earn any income from your orchard?

I'm interested in finding and sharing ways to manage fruit and/or nut production and increase income e.g. from grazing, juice production, nut oils, spring bulbs?  I'd like to visit orchards that are being managed traditionally, those that are trying new things and those that are keen to experiment, with a view to sharing your experiences with other orchardeers. Thanks
