Sergeants Orchard is a 3.2 hectare nature reserve in Mount Bures and north of Chappel in Essex. It is owned and managed by the Essex Wildlife Trust.[1]

The site was left to the Trust by the owner of Sergeants Farm in 1995. It consists of an old orchard in a long narrow field, another narrow field to the west and a larger one to the east. The western field has been planted with fruit trees and the eastern one with a conservation grass mix. A rare bee, Bombus muscorum, has been found on the site.[1][2]

There is access from a footpath between Fordham Road and Balls Chace[1]
