All are welcome to Apple Day - our fun, and fruit-filled, community celebration

Don't miss the much-loved apple tasting table, featuring more than two-dozen different varieties to try, including rare, local, and distinctive fruits, not usually found in the shops.  Juice making is an energetic and family-friendly activity.  Fresh-pressed juice tastes much more interesting than commercial juice, and brings even greater pleasure when accompanied by a slice of lovely home-made cake from the refreshments stall. 

Visitors to this year’s Apple Day can enjoy the newly planted Home Orchard Plot (HOP) – a mini orchard with a 10 x 4 metre footprint.  Orchard members planned and planted the HOP project to inspire everyone to grow fruit in small spaces.
