English Apple Weekend

Apple Weekend

There were apples aplenty at The Ludlow Food Centre, Bromfield, over the sunny weekend of Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st October 2007.

To celebrate Britain’s Apple Day, the Food Centre kitchens created a range of speciality apple products using locally sourced fruit and other ingredients, including sweet apple pies and crumbles, pork and apple burgers, apple chutney and a delicious apple sorbet, while regional producers such as Mahorall Cider, Teme Valley Fruit, Ashgrove Orchards and Brook Farm Cider handed out free samples of hand pressed juice and farmhouse cider to enthusiastic visitors.

Outside expert apple growers Breinton Manor Fruit Farm stopped people in their tracks by offering tasters from their mouthwatering display of traditional English varieties such as Lord Lambourne, Falstaff, Spartan, Cox’s Orange Pippin and Egremont Russet.

Managing Director Sandy Boyd says, ‘We are so lucky to have dozens of old English apple varieties grown in the region that taste great and are so versatile. Buying British means we not only help to preserve our historic orchards, which remain under threat, but it also helps cut down on harmful emissions created by transporting fruit from the other side of the world.’
