Hi everyone,

Just a quick message to tell you all that we have completely sold out of apples for 2020! Crazy, I know, but it’s all down to some bad weather we had in May.  Every orchard in this area has been affected and we fared better than others simply because we have more trees

We will still be open for the next two Sundays as advertised on the poster 12 til 3 p.m.

Luckily, we still have bottles of our fabulous Secret Orchard apple juice £1.50 a bottle.

Chill out and watch the birds and Squirrels.  See how many kinds of fungi you can find, it’s been the best year ever for toadstools. Or stroll around the Labyrinth.

Wassail 2020

An ancient tradition of blessing the trees and thanking them for the crop they have given this year and asking for the same again next year. Wassail means Good Health in Old Norse. So grab a cup of mulled apple juice and some toast, sing a Wassail song and shout a chant. Watch the Raving Maes Morris Side bang their sticks and listen to the choir. FREE EVENT. 12 NOON SHARP.
