Botus Fleming has a proud history of growing soft fruits and in particular sweet cherries which were shipped and transported to markets far and wide. Smallacombe is one of the few properties to have retained any of the centenarian standard cherry trees which still blossom and fruit, although these are now dying out throughout the valley. The current owners have replanted the orchards with traditional apple and cherry trees which produce a delightful blossom in the spring and a healthy crop in the fall.
