A traditional orchard is recognised as a priority site for biodiversity. Our demonstration orchard at Brimstage Hall was restored in the 19990’s and was planned to show a traditional orchard, largely of heritage fruit varieties. The orchard is managed organically, with hand tools and ongoing restoration and improvement.
We will be there between 10:30am and 2:30pm for advice or a chat about fruit trees, harvesting and the use of apples, pears, plums, hazels and quinces as food and drink. We are also sharing ideas about trees in schools, parks, community projects and for health, well-being and enjoyment.
We have some surplus trees grown from seed to give out for suitable use in schools or in places with public access, so head down and grab yours!
