Men can be notoriously tricky when it comes to buying them presents, which makes Father’s Day gift shopping a challenge.  However, choosing an experience or activity for dad can be the perfect solution.

Brogdale Collections, near Faversham, has a series of workshops scheduled for later this year which are perfect presents for fathers who enjoy learning new skills or trying fun activities.  Brogdale is the custodian of the nation’s fruit collections and its curated courses and workshops focus on fruit, nature and horticulture – including cider making; gardening and pruning; hedgerow wine making; foraging and more.

Sara Smile, Operations Manager at Brogdale Collections, says: “Dads are so hard to buy gifts for, but Brogdale has made Father’s Day gift shopping easy!   Our courses can be booked online and if you’d like your dad to choose his own treat, you can purchase gift vouchers for him instead.  These can be used to pay for any of our courses.”

For anyone wishing to buy their father a present he can enjoy all year, Brogdale’s Orchard Pass is also a great idea.  Passholders can visit Brogdale’s orchards throughout the year, enjoy tractor trailer rides, guided orchard tours, all year fruit tastings and talks with Brogdale’s knowledgeable guides along with free entry to selected events.

Brogdale Collections is a charity which provides education about the National Fruit Collections, which are set in 150 acres of farmland and home to over 4,000 varieties of pears, apples, cherries, quinces, plums and more. It’s an ideal place to visit for people who enjoy being outdoors and learning about nature, gardening and growing fruit.

The National Fruit Collection is one of the largest fruit collections in the world and is located at Brogdale Farm, near Faversham, Kent.
