14 VARIETIES OF APPLES
A RANGE OF 7 SINGLE VARIETY APPLE JUICES
NEW EXCITING RANGE OF CRAFT CIDERS
MARCH - MAY
As you will all be aware we have been living in unprecedented times... While the pandemic has been sweeping through the nation life on the farm has continued under cautious approach.
While business is not quite the same as normal we are grateful that we can still operate and supply all the local businesses with our produce.
Our apple season ended in March and we wish to thank each and every person who has supported our farm both buying and selling our produce. Although many of you will be disappointed that the apples are all gone, there is still some good news! We have a brand new line in our craft cider range, say hello to DEVON HILLS. Sweet and sparkling, Devon Hills is light, crisp and incredibly moreish! The perfect way to get through this lockdown is by sipping away on a Four Elms cider enjoying the sunshine.
On the note of good news, we have more!! We were recently delighted to hear that for the second year running our COX & BRAMLEY apple juice has won the top spot in the NATIONAL FRUIT SHOW. There was stiff competition from the nations top fruit and juice producers so we are feeling rather chuffed with ourselves...
What's happening around the farm?
Now that the apples are all sold unfortunately there is no time for stopping... approximately 20 000 trees need pruning. In case you were thinking this is done by a machine, it is not. Our band of merry warriors battle the elements with secateurs and saws working their way through the whole lot...
CIDER and JUICE production has now finished for the season but is of course still for sale directly though our website or on site collection (please call to arrange 01395 568286).
And finally (even morrre good news) we are thrilled to say that there has been a recent increase in hedgehog numbers on the farm. Good old hedgepigs.
Thanks for reading and stay safe out there...
