Orchard News

We have a wide variety of apples left and we are happy to sell in bulk to anyone wanting to juice, make cider etc.

Our shop will be open this weekend but then will close for the winter. However, we are happy to open if we know in advance that you are visiting. Our hampers, ideal for Christmas gifts, are still available on request ( – see a previous post). Our fruit vinegar, jellies etc are available to purchase in the Woodpecker Cafe, as is our very well received apple juice. We at present have two varieties of juice – Red Devil (sweet), Jupiter/Bramley (medium dry). We will be adding a third this week which we intend to call Heritage Apple juice (the juice from classic English Apples eg Blenheim Orange).
