Pershore has been associated with plums since 1833 when the landlord of the butchers Arms in Church Street discovered wild plums growing in Tiddesley wood. From this the Pershore Egg variety was developed. We have been going there for about 4 years now and it is a very good venue to let people know about us, also we always manages to sell lots of honey making a bit of profit for the association.

The honey stall always manages to hold a crowd of interested onlookers  Members of the association are ready to answer many of the questions put to them and also demonstrate the movement of the bee in the observation chamber, the younger viewers most excited when they find the marked queen. The local honey is of course most popular.
