Everyone loves apple juice and it’s something the whole family can enjoy, but have you ever thought about where is comes from and how it is made? Well look no further than our lovely orchards of the National Fruit Collection and the Brogdale Collections Heritage Orchards this summer where we are giving your kids and your family a unique opportunity to explore where our apples are growing and find out what happens to them.
Not only can you come along to Brogdale and walk through our orchards, where you can see more than 3,200 varieties of apples, cherries, pears and plums growing, but there is an opportunity for your family to pick some seasonal fruit from our special heritage orchards and then the kids can have a go at making their own juice.
Come along and visit our Heritage orchards this half term and you can:
Walk through the fruit orchards and pick your favourite seasonal fruit.
Watch as they are turned into juice.
Taste the juice from your chosen fruit.
Take home your best picks to eat later.
Take home some juice to share with your family later.
Challenge: See if you can follow the apple trail and reveal its secret.
Brogdale is a large open space, and hence, if people behave responsibly, they can enjoy the fresh air and the orchards whilst adhering to social distancing guidelines. Our priority will be to ensure you have a safe visit so we require all visits to be pre booked.
Brogdale has unlimited free parking, disabled toilets and a café.
