Thursday 9 August
The Potash Farm Partnership, Apple Trees, Comp Lane, St Mary’s Platt, Nr Sevenoaks, Kent, TN15 8NR
Kentish Cobnuts, a type of cultivated hazelnut traditionally grown in Kent, have long been prized as a delicacy. First grown in 1830, the Kentish Cobnut has sadly been in decline for some time now and this is a rare opportunity to visit one of the estates that grows and harvests them.
By kind invitation of Alexander Hunt, Chairman of the Kentish Cobnut Association, we would like to invite you to join us for a farm walk around Potash Farm, situated in the village of St. Mary’s Platt, which derives its name from cobnut production.
We will meet at the church in the village before proceeding to the main Platt at Potash Farm for the tour and for the chance to view some cobnuts and walnuts growing. The farm walk will end back at Apple Trees, where guests will be invited to partake in a glass of locally-produced wine and local cheeses, paired with cobnut chutneys and cobnut cheese biscuits, produced by Potash Farm. Alexander Hunt will speak about the evolution of the business and the ranges that Potash Farm are now famous for and guests will have the opportunity to browse the farm shop and view the trial area of cobnuts growing in the garden before their departure.
Cost: £15 including VAT for CLA members and their guests, £25 including VAT for non members
