11/10/2012 Cornish Orchards

This weeks meeting was a visit to Cornish Orchards, Duloe.
Westnorth Manor Farm is a Duchy farm, originally a mixed and then dairy farm. The first apple trees were planted around twenty years ago, in a steep field which was difficult to farm. As these trees matured and apple juice proved to be both popular and profitable, milk production gave way to a variety of apple juices and blends of cider. The club were given a brief tour of the facilities and then enjoyed sampling some cider at different stages during its process. A very enjoyable evening!
