AN orchard is staging an art trail this weekend.

Maldon-based artist Natalie Huntsman specialises in spray-painting – mainly pictures of birds on reclaimed wood.

She is staging the art trail at pal Rachel Hayter's traditional orchard at Daymens Hill Farm, just outside Tiptree.

Rachel and her family have been at the orchard for more than 40 years.

There are 10 acres of fruit trees and 40 varieties of apples and pears.

Visitors can pick their own fruit while spotting Natalie's artwork among the trees.
