Tyfu Cymru is delighted to be hosting a study visit to Warwickshire Walnuts (Brumington Farm, Shipston on Stour CV36 5AR)

Following the success of our Nut Power Hour, Tom Tame from TR Tame & Son – Granary Oils & Warwickshire Walnuts will share his knowledge further. With full washing, drying, cracking and shelling capability they sell walnuts as whole nuts, shelled, and make them into products. He will show us the machinery used in these processes.

Tom has a young walnut orchard (<10yrs) with some mature seedling trees. They harvest their own walnuts, collect locally and also source from other areas of the UK.

Tom imports and sells selected grafted cultivars for the garden, farm and commercial growers. These include grafted trees of Juglans & Carya -Heartnuts, Hickories, Pecans and Pecan Hybrids.
During the visit we will also be given a tour of the orchard, which will still have nuts on the trees and the potted grafted trees.

This study visit is funded by Tyfu Cymru, Lunch will be provided, but please provide your own transport.

Covid safety measures will be in place. Full details will be forwarded to attendees following registration.
