The annual apple swap brings apple growers from all over the island to the farm which generates up to 15 tonnes of, locally grown hand picked apples to supplement our own harvest. The initiative encourages local apple growers to support our local brand and boost our harvest through the exchange of their crops for either cash or cider.
It is an important time for us to swap apple stories and to meet a lot of our customers who would otherwise not have the opportunity to meet us.
We are delighted to buy the apples that would otherwise go to waste. We have also started importing apples from our sister island, Jersey, to give the cider a truly Channel Island branding and make it more appealing to a larger market.
