Reflecting on the 2019 Elderflower Season

Reflecting on the 2019 Elderflower Season

Well we made it through the season, with plenty of challenges along the way from the unpredictable English weather which kept us guessing on a daily basis! However our enthusiastic pickers, good flower yields and some exciting TV and radio coverage made it all worth while! Cold, dry winter weather wasn’t an ideal start to […]

Thirsty Elderflower welcomes rain!

Thirsty Elderflower welcomes rain!

The Easter bank holiday saw us in shirt sleeves scoffing melting chocolate in the sunshine; by contrast, but a week later, the May bank holiday saw us popping up brollies and donning raincoats. Though warmer more settled weather is again forecast our Elderflower plantations are understandably confused by the recent temperature variations and lack of […]

Growing pains

Growing pains

Elders – they’re the bane of gardeners everywhere. They seem to grow in all the places you don’t want them.  Particularly in gardens.  And it’s murder trying to get rid of them because whatever you do to them, year after year, they just keep coming back. But elders make elderflowers and, from our point of view, they’re […]

New for 2018!

New for 2018!

One of our favourite jobs each year is coming up with new flavours.  Like any  creative process, we never quite know at the start how our ideas will germinate and blossom.  Sometimes there are a few false starts, but there’s always lots of laughter and we even get to crack open a bottle of gin […]

Hangover-free January

Hangover-free January

Dry January.  It doesn’t sound much fun, particularly after all the jollity of the Festive Season.  But a month of alcoholic abstinence doesn’t have to be dull and boring.  It’s just a case of snuggling up in front of Netflix for 30 days to take your mind off the lack of Sipsmith or pinot grigio.

Go Sober for October!

Go Sober for October!

Nearly 100,000 people have signed up to go Sober for October to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.  Not only is this going to raise a whopping £2.2million for the charity, but it also means that there are a lot of people out are probably feeling rather perky because they haven’t had a hangover for […]

Harvest – from Leicestershire to Morocco

Harvest – from Leicestershire to Morocco

When you see our products sitting on supermarket shelves, it’s easy to forget that Belvoir Fruit Farms isn’t just a drinks business – we’re part of a fully functioning arable farm. And we’re just on the cusp of finishing this year’s harvest. At which point everyone breathes a huge sigh of relief. Along with over […]

If you happen to be at a loose end either this weekend or next weekend, then come and join us for a bit of excitement at the Countryfile Live Show (3rd-6th August) or at the International Bristol Balloon Fiesta (10th-13th August).  Our lovely, new hot air balloon will be flying at both events (weather permitting).
