Leith House Plum Orchards sit in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the North Norfolk coast. Planted by Garry Maufe between 1976 and 1978, The Orchard remains in the family to this day. There are almost 3,000 trees with over 40 varieties of plums, gages, damsons, and apples. It is considered one of the most varied plum orchards in the country.
The Orchard is run in an environmentally conscious manner with minimal inputs, the grass is also left long around the trees to encourage local wildlife.
A unique natural site, the plums ripen from mid July starting with the Hermans and ending with the Anna Spaths in mid September. The fresh fruit and related artisan products are sold direct from the Orchard stall during this period – a wonderful chance to buy high quality local produce in a beatiful setting.
