Four Elms Fruit Farm established its roots in Devon more than 50 years ago and has been run by the Smedley family since the early 1960s. Now into its third generation of family ownership, Four Elms continues to commit its investment in modern orchards and infrastructure, providing a sustainable future for apple and juice production.
The Smedley's currently grow 14 varieties of apple and produce a range of 7 'Real Devonshire Apple Juices'. With many years experience in the industry the team's passion and dedication to quality has resulted in numerous champion places in 'The National Fruit Show' and 'Taste of the West'.
Four Elms Fruit Farm take great pride in supporting the environment in and around the 70 acre orchards. Over the recent years Four Elms became an ambassador for the 'East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and aim to educate and encourage the public to cherish the glorious area of East Devon.
Multiple areas surrounding the apple orchards have recently been planted with wild flower meadows in support of the troubled honey bees, butterflies and other pollinating insect species.
Mark Smedley also runs over 10 thriving bee hives on the farm to help re-establish honey bee numbers in the UK. The honey produced by these marvellous bees can be purchased direct from the farm and is also sold in 'The Apple Shed'.
As well as bee hives, Four Elms is also home to numerous owl and bat species which live in boxes put up around the farm.
