Woodlands Farm Apple Day and half-term events for children

It’s Woodlands Farm‘s annual Apple Day event this Sunday, 13th October 2019, starting at 11am, and they also have some activities lined up for children in half-term week.

Maureen wrote with details of Apple Day:

Join us for a celebration of British apples on Sunday 13 October 2019 from 11am to 4pm. Discover and buy different types of traditional British apples. There will be music by Skinners Rats, tea and cakes from our Café, plus a BBQ. There will be a variety of activities including: apple pressing to make delicious juice, stalls selling local produce, including our own honey and homemade jams, and an opportunity to try some delicious Kentish cider. A great day out for all the family. Entry: Adult £1, Child 50p. All proceeds go towards keeping Woodlands Farm here as a conservation project and valuable resource for the community. A great family day out!

I’m looking forward to trying some interesting apple varieties, and getting some of my favourite Egremont Russets.
