Apple Day

October – Details for the 2019 event coming soon!

Every year we invite schools to come and visit our orchard at the Great Yorkshire Showground in October to celebrate National Apple Day. We have a selection of Yorkshire Heritage varieties including Yorkshire Beauty, Grandpa Buxton and Dog’s Snout!

Children also take part in a juicing workshop as well as preparing a baked apple to take home and bake for their pudding that night.
