Tarset and Greystead Parish Council has created an orchard on part of the site at Greenhaugh allotments with the permission of Defra. They picked some varieties that should grow well on this site. This has created something really special for the Parish.
The Parish Council obtained the trees and guards and a group of Tarset and Greystead residents, together with help form the Northumber National Park Authority (NNPA) planted the fruit trees on the 6th March 2010.
