Saturday 9 & 10 October, 10am till 4pm

This year, because of the unusual climatic changes our orchard team and indeed the world faces, apple weekend will not be the same as usual.

So, instead of an abundance of apples cascading off our tables for you to taste and buy, we will be concentrating on tours and education showing the visitor in a very real and practical way the challenges the orchard team face. Our guests should get an insight into the life cycle of the apple tree, the wonders of grafting, the reason for pruning, and the measures we are now putting into place to try and ensure we have a good harvest in the future. You will be able to see juice being made, taste our wonderful single variety juices and ask questions of the experts.

There will of course be lots else to see: the vegetable bounty of the walled garden, the visiting stall-holders, the autumnal splendor of the gardens: a feast for all the senses.

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.
