Welcome to Big Apple!

Big Apple in 2022


Our Harvestime 2022 weekend will take place on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th October.  We are currently planning the programme, which will be posted online at the end of August.  Please check back on or after 1st September for detailed information about what will be happening at each of our nine venues in and around Much Marcle.


Our annual Blossomtime event took place over the Bank Holiday weekend of Sunday 1st and Monday 2nd May, centred on the village of Putley and several hundred people attended over the two day. Saturday 30th April also saw the 2022 Big Apple Cider and Perry Trials – 44 makers entered over 100 different ciders and perries.  Go to the Cider and Perry Trials page for the results.

Come back to Putley next May Day bank holiday weekend for Blossomtime 2023!
