Two years ago Zammit Roofing generously offered us 5 acres of apple orchard at the bottom of Bloors Lane to run both as a productive orchard and as a wildlife habitat. Since then a dedicated band of volunteers has put in many hours clearing nettles, thistles etc. and then pruning during the winter. As a result the whole of the orchard is now accessible, producing much more fruit and the variety of wildlife is increasing.  More volunteers are always welcome, including to help staff the PYO days.  To find out more please email orchard@thenet.uk.net or call Hamish on 01634 310011 9.00 to 5.00 Monday to Friday.

 

Apple Juice

We are sending a quantity of fruit to Owl House Fruit Farm for juicing and expect to have several hundred litre bottles
of juice to sell. Their own “Owlet Fruit Juices” have won many awards so we are expecting an excellent quality
product. All profits will again be donated to Kent Wildlife Trust. We are looking for outlets willing to stock them on
this basis. Details of prices and where to buy will be advertised in future editions of The Net and www.thenet.uk.net

Current outlets stocking our apple juice are:
