Autumn Harvest

The pumpkins and squash have been harvested, producing a good crop which are availalbe for sale (a price list is in the front entrance).  Their beds have been cleared, rotivated and tidied, ready for next year.  In the kitchen garden, the bean frames have now been dismantled and beds worked over.

Most of the apples in the cider orchard have been picked and yielded 7 full crates, which is estimated to be around 2 tonnes.  These will be pressed as soon as possible and the juice stored in 600 litre tanks and left for the magic to work and turn itself into cider.  Most of last years cider has been bottled and is available to buy in the main hall near reception.  Feedback has been positive for the 2013 vintage, but please do try it and let us know what you think...
