Agroforestry Research Trust


The Agroforestry Research Trust is a non-profit making charity, registered in England, which researches into temperate agroforestry and into all aspects of plant cropping and uses, with a focus on tree, shrub and perennial crops.

We run popular courses on forest gardening / food forests and growing nuts.


Our website is being completely updated and installed in this next week up to July 1st. During those dates, web access may be unavailable for some periods.

We produce several publications and a quarterly journal, sell various other relevant books, and also sell plants (particularly fruit and nut trees and bushes), seeds and Parafilm grafting tape.

NEW: We have a few great hand-cranked nutcracking machines available - see here
