It is with great regret that we have had to cancel this year’s Fruit Day because of a severe lack of fruit. We normally press about 1 tonne of fruit in the course of the day. This year we have only picked about 200 kilos with our last picking session on Monday September 21st. We have asked all the tree owners on our database and it seems that the apple crop has fallen about 6 weeks early. Lots of tree owners reported no fruit at all. We hope for a better crop next year! We will be pressing a few trays of apples in a smaller press at the Harvestival at St Peters Church, Black Lion Lane.
