Sharpham Apple Day 2018

Sunday 7th October 2018 - 10.30am - 4pm

It's a pressing engagement!

The day will include a host of apple-themed activities for all the family, including storytelling, walks, arts and crafts and games. 

Try our fresh juice grown at Sharpham's organic orchards - straight from the press.

Or bring your own apples to juice (just not windfalls from orchards grazed with animals in the last six weeks). In exchange for bringing the fruit, you will be given half of this delicious freshly-pressed apple juice back in new bottles while the other half will be kept to help support the charitable work of the Trust.

If you haven't any apples to bring, don't worry. You can buy bottles of this delicious juice on the day.

Or wander through the formal and woodland gardens of historic Sharpham House, set in a Capability Brown parkland landscape.
