Longhaven Orchard is a fine example of what's possible on a small scale. Grass roots operator growing quinces,apples,feijoas,berries, citrus varieties, and walnuts.
Due to commitment to quality I make the products in small quantities,preserves set better, have a better colour and cutting up and cooking of small amounts is a pleasant rather than a wearisome task.
Quinces sold at markets April/May pinky lady May/June.
