On the market with Lambert & Foster are productive, modern, trellised Smitten and Gala apple orchards on Grade 1 soils, with dual road frontage, on the outskirts of Hartlip, Kent.

The property comprises 27.42 acres (11.09 hectares) of productive orchards, including a mixture of established Smitten and Gala apple orchards on trellised wirework. The planted areas are:

  • Gala – 4.7 acres (1.90 hectares)
  • Smitten – 19.75 acres (7.99 hectares)

The land is classified as Grade I on the DEFRA Agricultural Land Classification Map, and Soilscape describes it as freely draining, lime-rich loamy soils.

Depending on the timetable for the sale, the vendors would consider, in addition to the agreed sale price, an ingoing valuation for the work carried out for the benefit of the 2024 fruit crop. Alternatively, holdover would be considered to reserve the right to continue to farm the orchards until post harvest 2024.
