Our orchard contains around 40 trees in about an acre. The trees planted are mostly local Devon varieties such as Veitch’s Perfection, Hoary Morning and Fair Maid of Devon, among others.
We use the apples from our orchard to make our delicious and ever popular apple juice, as well as our crowd-pleasing cider.
As in the vineyard, we minimise the use of any chemicals in our orchard. We recently invested in some Ouessant sheep who will be used as ‘lawn mowers’ to control the grass and weeds in the orchard so we can eliminate the use of chemicals entirely.
