Nichol Farm adjoins the land originally planted with apples, cherries and other fruits by the gardener to Henry VIII, namely Richard Harris, in the sixteenth century. This was known as the ‘Kings Orchards situated in the village of Teynham, for the enjoyment of King Henry’.
From the founding of the first commercial apple and cherry orchards here at Teynham in the reign of Henry VIII, Kent has been and remains the apple capital of the country. The county's’ climate and soils are ideally suited to growing apples and other fruits. Historically the proximity to London guaranteed a ready market and this remains a target today for the high quality juices that we produce.
