On Saturday 17th March from 1.00 - 3.00pm  they have a free tasting day

of different heritage varieties of apples and pears. They take you on a journey back to your childhood bring back the flavour and smells of fruits to your senses. They have over 26 varieties of apples and 7 pear varieties.  They will be offering pruning, grafting, espalier and pest problem workshops during winter.  People can "learn how" to graft their favourite apple on to their own trees.  They encourage people wanting to learn the old craft of grafting to try different apples and at their workshops people can purchase scion wood for grafting.  Visitors to their farm can purchase fruits, vegetables, PYO strawberries and crafts from their shop.

They can be found by looking for a scarecrow called Wally out the front who changes appearance often.
