This hugely popular free event is in aid of local charities and is a rare opportunity for fruit enthusiasts to taste a wide variety of the old an new apple and pear varieties grown at Blackmoor – from traditional favourites like Cox’s Orange Pippin and Norfolk Royal Russet to exciting new varieties like Opal and Rubens (Note Opal and Rubens trees are not available to purchase). Apple ‘doctors’ will be on hand to identify mystery apples and apple ailments, fruit trees and plants will be available from our nursery, and as usual there will be a range of other attractions including: rural craft fair and demonstrations; community fete; local produce stalls; horse and cart rides; cakes and teas; climbing wall; Morris dancing; and cider of course!

Come and say hello to us at the ARC information stall and find out more about what we do to help protect the UK's disappearing amphibians and reptiles.

We could always use volunteers behind the stall and if anyone would like to help, please contact
