Tractor Ride

Its a favourite for big kids and small...

A unique tractor ride experience for the whole family, venturing through Cornwall’s largest independent commercial orchard seeing where our  Cornish cyder and juice apples come from.

We have two historic ‘Fordson Major’ tractors here on the farm, including ‘Bertha’. There’s nothing more pleasing than the smile on childrens faces as the big old tractors fire into life at the beginning of the trip.

Together with your expert driver, you will journey down into 20 acres of Cornish orchards at our site at Penhallow.  Approx. 15 minutes in duration, the narration en-route will ensure you get the most out of your trip whilst you view our trees which look different during the seasons.

During blossom season, the budding trees create a sea of perfect pink flower, a breath-taking sight not to be missed.  Whilst harvest time (September- November)  is the best time of the year to see the trees full of fantastic fruit.  Here, you’ll be able to distinguish all our different varieties which were planed back as far as 30 years ago by the Healey family alongside  some of our newer trees planted by the second generation family.

Be sure to keep an eye out for a bottle or two in amongst the trees…. all will be explained on the trip.
