We have a five acre orchard on a gentle East-facing slope between the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors national parks.
The orchard has over 500 trees which are maintained to support the natural ecosystem and maximise biodiversity, using no pesticides or herbicides. We started with an empty ploughed field, but now the orchard is home to hedgehogs, mice, wild flowers and nesting birds, including a resident pair of buzzards.
There are over 18 varieties of apple, including old Northern varieties such as Ribston Pippin and Keswick Codlin as well as a range of classic cider apples. These are hand-picked at the peak of ripeness to ensure the maximum flavour and aromatic qualities.
We also have partnerships with other local orchards and growers to expand our blending options.
