TR Tame & Son, Burmington Farm, Shipston-on-Stour, Warwickshire, CV36 5AR

Burmington Farm was originally a mixed arable, sheep and hay operation but their production is now focussed on sheep, hay and walnuts.   All of their nuts are retailed directly to the public along with grafted nut trees.  The farm has the only full walnut drying, cracking & shelling line in the UK and advise others on walnut growing.  All of the farm’s orchards are sylvopasture; the main orchard of 4.4Ha has trees nominally spaced at 10m x 10m and a newer one planted in the winter 2022/23 is 2.15 Ha with trees spaced at 8m x 8m.   The farm has drip irrigation for establishing the new trees  All trees are guarded with home-made weld mesh guards and machined posts to allow sheep to graze in the orchards..

Come and join us on a tour of the farm and take the opportunity to purchase some walnuts, trees, oils and skin products at their on-site shop.
