Pope’s Perry is made at Avenue Cottage in Much Marcle, Herefordshire by the extended family of Janet and Nicholas Pope. Avenue Cottage is a smallholding with old and recently planted orchards, edible hedgerows, ponds, and grazing. The 18th century field patterns have been reinstated, and the original pond re-excavated. New orchards have been planted containing groves of quince, mulberry, medlars, crab apple, hazel nut, walnut, sweet chestnut and wild plum.
The edible hedgerows, which divide the four fields of orchards and grazing and surround the ponds, are planted with wild plums, cornelian cherries, hazel nuts, rosehips, sea buckthorn, and sloes.
