Heritage Fruit

Apples

Here at Gluvian Farm, we are lucky enough to have our own historic orchard, full of seasonal fruit, which has arrived a little early this year. Above are a few windfalls from the ‘Bramley’ (cookers) and ‘Beauty of Bath’ (eaters) trees. We also have ‘Russett’ and ‘Sops of Wine’, the latter is a particularly good cider apple. In addition to these varieties of apples, we also have a very stately ‘Victoria Plum’ tree. Once we have foraged the hedgerows for the big, juicy blackberries we have here, it’s time to get cooking some delicious crumbles, jams and jellies!
