Herefordshire Orchards Community Evaluation project (HOCE) looked at six very different orchards in Herefordshire. It developed and used accounting techniques to derive a broad value of each orchard. Results of the study are published (2012) in NECR090 edition 1 - Economic, biodiversity, resource protection and social values of orchards: A study of six orchards by the Herefordshire Orchards Community Evaluation Project.
