Apple Picking and Pressing

Apple Picking
    • Too high to reach for little hands, the whole family can come and help with our harvest and pick apples from Almond Valley’s orchard.

      Every Friday and weekend from 6th - 21st September, you can join in these special events where you’ll find a wide variety of flavourful fruits ready to be picked and used in our delicious baking, available in the tearoom.

      And on the weekends of the 15th,16th, 22nd and 23rd September, children can have a go of apple pressing where they can learn how to make apple juice the traditional way and taste their creations.

      Picking the apples means that autumn is on its way so come and join in the fun!
