Try Some Great Local Fruit!

WOT2Grow - Your Community Orchard

If you want to share in the fantastic autumn raspberries from your Community Orchard then just come along and pick some fruit at one of our sessions and get some for free!!

The Autumn raspberries are prolific! We have picked record amounts of all fruit this year but the raspberries are the best performers. This means we have been able to distribute good quantities of fruit to the Care Homes in Kineton and also to the Tysoe Lunch Club.  

We have taken some apples from the trees those that the birds and wasps didn't get to first and used them to make cakes and pies for the Open Sunday with Cream Teas!  We also have the first cider apples, not enough to make any cider but a good sign of things to come.

 The Open Sunday was a great success we served over 80 Cream Teas plus lots of squash and biscuits for the children. The cakes, jam, honey and raspberries were snapped up by enthusiastic visitors. Interest in the orchard continues to grow as many new visitors came along as well as our usual supporters. There was universal praise for the wonderful setting, the incredible number of trees and canes, the quality of the fruit, honey and produce made from the orchard fruit. So if you want to sample all of this do come along and see for yourself!

We also planted two Christmas Trees which will in future years be lit up in Tysoe. The children made a great job of ensuring they were well planted!

Please put Saturday 11th October in your diary as we hold our annual Apple Day at the orchard from 1:30pm. Juicing apples is the main thing people enjoy so bring you own apples and take home the juice or share in the communal juicing.

If you would like to join us/ find out more do come along to one of our sessions on a Wednesday at 10:00 and a Sunday at 2:00 or contact one of the team
