At the Countryside Education Trust we have been connecting people with nature for over 40 years. Alongside our programme of residential and day visits we run several events and open days throughout the year with the aim of offering something for everyone.
As part of our commitment to the environment we take pride in being as self-sufficient as possible. We use as much of our own produce as we can to feed our residential groups and those attending our open days. We also make our own beeswax food wraps using wax from our own hives and are soon to venture into producing soap made with milk from our herd of pedigree Golden Guernsey goats.
In the autumn months we harvest fruit from our traditionally grazed orchard which is pressed in Hampshire to produce a refreshing blend of fruity, well-flavoured apple juice.
Jane Cooper, Chief Executive of the Countryside Trust, says: ‘We are fervent believers in producing good food and harvest time is always special with a flurry of preserving and freezing to ensure that we can serve home-grown food to our visitors. Our apple juice is another way of ensuring that we avoid waste, and air miles, and produce delicious produce’.
To try our delicious juice and try your hand at pressing some of our apples why not come along to our Apple Day on Tuesday 29th October here at Home Farm (11-3pm, parking and entry free).
Apple Juice: £3 (750ml bottle)
Available from Home Farm from end of October.
(Tuesday) 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
