Apple Day
Initiated 21 years ago by Common Ground,
celebrates our local FRUITFULLNESS and DIVERSITY,
which also happen to be two facets of our community-run Village Shop.
For 2nd year we are delighted to be part of the Aldeburgh Food Festival FRINGE events.
Apple Identification
At 10.00 you’re invited to bring along your apples for identification or buy apple fruit trees from Hatton Farm Nurseries.
Apple Walking
At about 11 we’ll start off on an Apple Ramble. Led by our one and only Eddie Krutysza, we’ll meander around notable apple trees in the village, before walking through forest, past crab-appled hedgerow to Wakelyns Agro-forestry apple system – a field planted by Ann and Martin Wolfe with 21 heritage varieties of apple trees (including a C13th French variety, Coeur de Boeuf).
AND BACK, to apple pie and apple ice cream at Metfield Stores.
