With the apple season in full swing why not come and see and taste a wide selection of apple varieties and find out how easily you could grow your own apples? There will be apple displays including heritage and new varieties.
Apple Juicing (Sunday 21st only)
Cuddybridge Apple Juice will be juicing apples so come along and taste some freshly pressed juice. This small Borders-based producer won an award this year at Scotland Food and Drinks Excellence. Cuddybridge has teamed up with National Trust Scotland and now presses the apples from the Trust's own orchards.
The displays over the weekend will include locally grown apples and many unusual and heritage varieties.
Apple Identification (Saturday 20th only)
Willie Duncan, Fife-based apple expert, will be on hand to identify your apples and will have his extensive apple collection on display.
