‘Tis indeed the season and for regular followers of this blog (and friends of the farm), it will come as no surprise that we are never short of an apple-based beverage or two….

We are back at the farm after a fantastic weekend in Belfast at the Nuffield Farming Conference 2015. The conference has been held annually since 1972, all thanks to a chap named William Morris, heralding from Worcestershire, over 100 years ago….

Yes, it’s that time of year again when I find mysef staring in to the cold store and wondering just how imaginative I can be with the apples, yet again!

We’ve lots of great plans for 2014 – we’ve already ordered new tables to give a more professional boardroom style and are in the process of hanging fresh new ‘fruity’ canvas prints taken from our orchards which will give a fresh and bright feel to the venue.  We’ll let you know when they are all up!
