Spare Apples in Somerset?

Why not support the very fascinating and worthy Apples on the Strawberry Line project being run by Neil Phillips. He is looking to collect apples that are near to, or run along the Strawberry Line. The line is the old Cheddar Valley Line and runs from Yatton to Shepton Mallet and beyond taking in Cheddar, Wells and Evercreech. He also has a great Scrumping Project blog!

We can process your donated apples into cider or apple juice, and once it’s ready we deliver it back to you all packaged and with a label that shows where the apples were sourced. Perfect if you own rental properties, guest houses or small hotels where you can place the cider or apple juice in the property as a gift to your guests.
