John Fryer and Sons is a small family run business, established in 1938 by John Fryer. The farm is on two sites and is mainly Orchards. The farm is now run by John Fryers 2 of the sons, Robert and Charles, along with other members of the family.
Robert Fryer and Charles Fryer farm the Orchards. We grow Apples, Pears, Plums and Cherries at Hull Farm. In 1985 we acquired the land at Lawford which is now a mixed Orchard at one end. We grow Braeburn, Gala, Cox and Russet for the supermarket and we grow a variety of top fruit, Apples, Medlers, Crab Apples, Pears, Plums, Greengages, Damsons, Quince, Blueberries, Sweet Cherries, Morello Cherries, Cobnuts and Christmas Trees for the Farm Shop, on the site of Fryers Farm Shop.
Susan Fryer is based in the Farm Shop at Lawford with the help of Nephew Simon Fryer, Peggy and other members of the family. Simon also works in the Orchards.
Last year in the shop, Susans Niece, Laura Jane, joined the team.
Simon Fryer and Kevin Waters help with the pruning and supervise the Summer Orchard Work and picking.
