In a corner of north Essex Tendring Fruit is a young company which started only five years ago. To maximise space on the farm the idea was to create a high intensity concept orchard. The main business is growing apples and pears with the addition of plums, wild garlic and rhubarb. Simon Garnham told Ken Crowther how the business started.

The rhubarb crop at Calcott Hall Farm in Brentwood is well ahead this year. The team have been able to pick for several weeks beating the local competition. Market gardener Andrew McTurk talked to Ken Crowther about the latest on the farm.
