Rake Community Orchard

Behind the Village Hall, beside the close-mown playing field was an unloved area of bracken and rabbit holes. Since 2012 we have transformed this into a meadow planted with fruit trees, beautiful wooden benches and picnic benches.

Our Trees

The trees continue to grow and the blossom in the spring Is a delight. A mass of pink and white flowers grace the boughs for weeks as the flowering times of each tree differ and overlap. Fruit has grown, and as predicted, is being eaten by both people and the watching wildlife.

You can find a list of the trees in our orchard here
