About Adam's Apples
Adam’s Apples is a nursery growing apple and other fruit trees with love and care in the heart of the West Country. From our field in the Devon countryside, we bring a half century of growing knowledge and apple expertise to trees we send out across the south west, UK and Europe.
Just as an apple is a product of weather conditions, soil conditions, and its variety, we take the same holistic approach to how we run our business.
We are a Living Wage employer, but paying our amazing team above the rate required for accreditation.
We do everything to ensure the trees that go out to our customers are grown to a high quality and ready to thrive where planted, but using farming methods that don’t cost the earth.
The horticultural industry has some bad practises in terms of pesticide use, soil management and over-use of plastic products. We are working actively within the business and with suppliers to reduce our reliance on plastic products, which we recognise to be a huge problem we want to help address.
We are experimenting with green manures and mulches as a way to avoid using herbicides and minimise cultivations in the production of our trees, at the same time increasing soil health. We use long-term deep-rooted lays to create soil fertility as part of our growing rotation as well as semi-permanent flower margins to attract beneficial insects.
We’re proud to say that apples and fruit trees are our passion, and are constantly figuring out the best way to share that passion and expertise with customers around the country, in the most sustainable way we can.
