English Blossom – Japanese Food

May 1st, 2023,12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us under the Orchard blossoms for your family picnics. This special weekend, we have authentic Japanese food to order too.

In Japan they call it ‘Hanami ‘, each spring families flock outdoors to picnic under the pink blossoms of plum trees. Here, we have our own ‘English Hanami’; under the apple trees.

Our two heritage apple and pear orchards are just the place for an early Spring picnic. The frothy white blossom flowers truly lift the soul.

Japanese picnic food to pre-order

All food will be prepared for you fresh on the day- please PRE-ORDER to ensure Yumi sources the right ingredients for you.
