(As shown in the second photo)

  • Storing fruit & veg
  • Over wintering Bulbs
  • Herb gardens
  • Garden trays
  • Shop & Farm Displays
  • Home & Garden storage etc etc

Our vintage farm crates were original made for chitting potatoes and then in the 1960s and 70s for apple storage.

You can use them to keep apples aired & fresh in the traditional country manner.

Each crate stacks neatly on top of the other, allowing air to circulate & making easy to assess to you stored fruit or veg .

They also stack compactly together in pairs (facing each other) to save storage space when not in use.


These are genuine original vintage farm crates that have been used & stored in farm barn .
It's quite rare to find them this old !
Our oldest ones are 1950 ! 67 years old!

They do show signs of there age!
They show reasonable amounts of wear & tear , dust and soil, rusty old nails and a few old worm holes and a few dents
Some have broken or missing boards but i think this all adds to their charm rustic nature and character & authenticity.

Some have the age and /or farmers name along the front and back but most are plain so perfect if you want to personalize them yourself .

Please do not purchase if your after a brand new clean look these crates  will not be for you !

If you would  like to use our crates for use in your home you will need to give them a good wash, and may also prefer to treat and wax or paint them first but please remember that I'm selling them as old used original crates for fairy garden use.
