The last Open Day at the Fruit Farm was in October 2014. This Apple Day event was run for over 25 years but there will be no more. .
On Apple Day there were exhibitions, guided walks around the orchard, apple display of all our varieties with tasting of over 30, apple juice making and produce for sale apples, pears, juices, honey, apple cakes and pies, chutneys and jellies, local cider and more. There were also children's games, quizzes and the longest apple peel challenge to make it a day out for all the family. Entrance and car parking were free.
Spring Open Day
Often in the
Spring, Cross Lanes opened the gates to invite people to enjoy the wonderful apple blossom.
The day wa held in aid of a local charity. This was a day to wander round and see the orchard
at its best, full of expectation of the crop to come. Fixing a date was always tricky
with full bloom having varied from 19 April to 23 May with an average around 6th May.
There will bo no more Blossom Days here.
