Easton Royal Village Orchard was first planted in November 2012. It was planted and is maintained by members of the community. The orchard is planted with 54 trees in the upper field, being mostly apples with some pear, plum and damson trees. The orchard was funded by villagers sponsoring a tree and by a grant from Wiltshire Council. Many different varieties are planted, some good for eating, some for cooking and some for both.
The orchard also contains some rare Wiltshire apple varieties including Bedwyn Beauty, Celt, Corsley Pippin, Mary Barnett and Roundway Magnum Bonum.
In the lower field are a few unnamed varieties of apple plus a crab apple and a quince.
