Due to fifteen consecutive days of unseasonal heavy frost at just the wrong time of the year, our apple crop was hit hard, leading to a much reduced number of apples for sale. We have innovative plans in place to protect the crop next year so fingers crossed for a bumper crop then!

Despite of this we can still offer you a great family day out where you will be able to sample and buy many of our different types of juices. Advice and information on growing, planting, apple identification and selecting trees and rootstock will be available on the day. Buy goodies at the craft and food fair. This year, for the first time, our popular guided tours of the orchards and fruit sheds will also include the chance to go behind-the-scenes and see our apple press in action (£3 per adult or free with garden entrance and for season ticket holders). You can also take a tour of our Bee Hives and learn about the wonders of natural bee keeping. Take the children around the apple game in the gardens (must be accompanied by an adult for whom the garden entrance fee applies – not forgetting to keep an eye out for our pumpkin display in the Walled Garden!
