What we do

Working entirely with volunteers, we

  • run seasonal events, such as our Misteltoe Fair (17th December) and Wassailing (14th January), to celebrate our orchard heritage (see our events page)
  • share our enthusiasm for orchards with all sorts of people; through talks, walks and events, including sessions for school children
  • teach people practical orchard management skills
  • encourage everyone to enjoy sustainable local orchard produce
  • have lots of fun!
