We’re delighted to announce that we plan to go ahead with Harvestime this year over the weekend of 9/10th October.
Please visit the Harvestime page for details.
We hope to see you in Much Marcle soon.
Cider and Perry Trials took place on July 17th
We held a small, delayed 2021 Cider and Perry Trials at Dragon Orchard in the summer heat! Report and pictures on the Cider and Perry Trials page.
We were sorry that we were unable to run our usual Blossomtime events in Putley this year.
The blossom is now over and the fruit is set (apart from those trees that succumbed to the frosts in April).
Guided tours of the Westons cider mill are now happening again (advance booking only) and The Scrumpy House restaurant is serving food once more! For details see Westons website.
And, not far away at all is The Nest!
Grab an outside table or pop by and pick up a picnic from their shop to enjoy in the orchards. https://www.facebook.com/thenestledbury/.
If you fancy a walk, these routes will take you into the countryside, passing through some of our local orchards – take a look!
And finally, what better way to explore the Herefordshire countryside than by bike? Come Cycling Ledbury publish a 20-mile circular ‘Cider Cycling Route’. See, hear and smell the countryside. Maybe arrange to visit one of our cider producers? The map starts from Ledbury, and copies are available from local bookshops and bike shops. Or click here to buy online: https://www.comecyclingledbury.com/bike-maps.html.
Looking forward, plans are well advanced for a Harvestime event in October.
