About Us

Welsh Fruit Stocks is one of a very few nurseries in the UK offering gardeners and growers the opportunity to buy soft fruit plants direct from the propagators. This means we sell healthy plants dug from our fields and delivered direct to your door.

Our fruit nursery lies at an altitude of above 1000 feet, amongst the Radnorshire hills of east Wales. It has unsurpassed isolation from other fruit growing areas and the very healthy conditions allow us to grow many of our stocks organically or biologically.

In the past this has been a traditional livestock rearing farm and is in excellent heart. We have sheep and cattle which allow us to naturally maintain fertility, use long rotations and utilise our permanent pastures and hill grazing.

Being on the edge of several different habitats - heather moorland, ancient woodland, traditional grassland and small areas of wetland - the biodiversity here is unique. We have recorded over 50 species of birds, from redstarts to red kites, and we have a very diverse flora too.

Our family started growing nursery fruit bushes in the 1960s and when we found that other types of soft fruit grew so well here, we increased our range to include all the major types. We have a wide range of strawberry plants and fruit bushes, all organically grown, as well as raspberry canes, which are grown biologically.

We have always believed in raising our plants so they experience minimal stress, giving them a natural resilience to pests and diseases. This has meant minimal use of chemical sprays, which we found increased plant stress, and looking after the soil so the plants have all the nutrients they need. We treat our soil as a living organism, and look after and feed the organisms living in it so that it, in turn, provides all of the support for healthy plant growth.

We also have a team of local, skilled people who work with the plants all year round. It is their dedication, in all weathers, together with careful day-to-day management, that ensures the high quality of our plants. Throughout the growing season we rely on hand hoeing, weeding and cultivation to keep the crops clean and to reduce the stress on the plants. Through the autumn, winter and spring, the plants are lifted, hand-selected and carefully packed ready for despatch.

Camping Pods

Powys Pods is a rural retreat hidden away in the Welsh marches on our working semi-organic hill farm. Our aim is to provide an alternative to the traditional camping experience without losing the back to nature appeal so many people seek.

Our site is a perfect base for walkers, pony trekkers, mountain bikers, bird watchers and for those who just want to enjoy the tranquillity of the countryside. Evenings can be spent relaxing, cooking up a feast on the barbecue or roasting marshmallows around the bonfire pit, all whilst enjoying some beautiful sunsets over the valley. You may be lucky enough to see a red kite soaring in the summer breeze, or perhaps try some star gazing on a clear night.

The wooden pods have heating and lighting and the site has a covered area housing toilets, showers, a drying room and a food preparation area. So you can be comfortable, warm and dry in all weathers, while fully experiencing the outdoor life.

We have three camping pods; a standard one for 2 adults 2 children, a family pod available for up to 5 people and a microlodge which can accommodate two people and has the bonus of having beds already waiting for you (just bring a sleeping bag and a pillow)!
