2012 Production

Production 2012

The national apple harvest this year has been disastrous, an off year to top all off years.this has been put down to the very wet spring and early summer. No blossom and no bees, to put this into perspective we have a small orchard of 21 young trees planted in 2010, from these trees we harvested 25 apples!

By about Easter time we knew our project was under threat so I got on the phone to track down a possible new supplier, there were a few far flung cider orchards with late varieties to offer for sale. it was a bit of a worry but we have a good drop of cider coming along nicely!I know these machine harvested apples look grubby but they scrub up well, see below
