A is for Apple!

I spent an enjoyable couple of hours at the Blackmoor estate’s apple day today – and going by the crowds, the good old British apple is still much loved!

I am going to let a few pictures describe the day – from the apple point of view anyway – there was much, much more to see alongside apples!

It is great that farmers such as William Wolmer are prepared to hold days like this – not only encouraging folk to buy British, but also introducing them to the wonderfully delicious taste of “old varieties”- which of course will go a long way in helping to save them for future generations to enjoy too! 

Lots of people attended - the car parks were packed!

Don't you just love some of the names of these old apple varieties!

  1. Blackmoor Estate is a fantastic environmentally friendly estate. they have lots of wild flower margins which are a haven for wildlife and invetebrates. they help to buffer the important Woolmer Forest heathland SSSI/SAC/SPA area even helping to restore a small area of heathland then selves.
