Welcome to Lathcoats Farm, Galleywood, Essex, a fourth generation family fruit farm growing over 40 varieties of delicious English apple, and a wide variety of summer fruits for PYO

Our apple season is now well under way, with most of the harvest safely gathered in. Now is the best time to visit the farm shop for a wide selection of apple varieties and single variety juices made from our own apples.

The Farm Shop continues to offer a delivery service to our local vulnerable community and also a click and collect service for those who are concerned about entering the farm shop (there is no criteria for those wishing to click and collect at present). For more information click here.

The Bee Shed is now open for dining in and the Takeaway Hatch continues to operate with plenty of outdoor and sheltered seating available, open Monday to Saturday 9-4. Please follow the links to find out more. We have had to make some changes to our menus which you can view here.

While Covid continues to be an issue we can sometimes find ourselves short staffed with very little notice. So very occasionally we may just offer our takeaway menu, but you are welcome to take your purchases to any of the seating, inside or out, to enjoy.


For PYO always check our PYO Latest News Page before travelling to make sure we are open.

Events: Our Pumpkin Festival, is now fully booked for this season
