Fresh as fresh as fresh… Our harvest apple celebration is fast approaching. It’s been positively Isaac-Newton-like here with apples from our heritage orchard plopping, heavy and ripe, to the ground.
This year, as well as all the lovely entertainment, displays and activities, we want to invite visitors to get some really fresh tastes from our,and their own, gardens.
You can have a go at crushing an apple and tasting the juice it makes.
Which is your favourite?
We’ll have up to 6 different varieties to choose from. We bet you have never tasted anything like it from the supermarket.
Some of this year’s harvest from our two heritage orchards has already been bottled for you to buy – stock up ready for mulled apple juice at Christmas.
Is there an apple tree in your garden or on a piece of public common land nearby?
Why not harvest some and bring along a bag to juice here? If you bring along a clean jug or plastic bottle you can take it home to drink later that day.
(don’t forget to leave some on the tree for the birds).
Underground potatoes …
Yes, its true. Potatoes grow underground, in the dark.
Don’t believe us? Come along on Sunday 16th, borrow a fork and dig up some of ours… and hey, you can even take them home and bake them for tea (£1 a large bag).
