We have established a small but growing community orchard on a beautiful, 2 acre site on the outskirts of the town (next to the Ranmore Allotments). With over 100 new fruit trees planted over the past 3 years, we are expecting to start harvesting in 2013 or 2014. We grow mainly apples, with an emphasis on local varieties, as well as pears and various stone fruits.
The site is free and open to everyone, and we welcome visitors. We are always keen to recruit new volunteers to help with planting, pruning, picking and general maintenance, and to join our various educational and horticultural events.
