New Year's Day

No holiday for us, with us bottling the St Mary's Perry not quite ready for consumption, spring will soon be here, I wonder if we shall have any visitors today?

Apple Harvest

May be quiet for a while, it is our busiest time of year and the whole family get involved with cider making, no holiday for us during half term, full stream ahead.

The Night We Have Be Planning For

Fantastic night with the Rinky Dinks, the weather was fab, the campers enjoyed bacon sandwiches for breakfast and everyone had a fantastic time, with lots of cider consumed.  Thanks to everyone who came, can't wait for next year.

Apple Season has started

Harvesting has begun with the lovely Discovery Apples being made in Apple Juice, our first attempt at Apple Juice, lets see how it goes, as you can see everyone likes to help out.
