This is a co-creative harvest celebration. Our task is simply to make 3000 litres of crowd collected and co-produced Apple juice to ferment into cider and vinegar for 2020 and have the most fun possible while doing it. We all wash and press apples together for a couple of hours each day to keep the juice flowing; enjoy the food and workshops throughout the day and music, fires and dancing every evening.

We have created this ticket link especially for you and other great freinds/allys to whom we feel a debt of gratititude, to encourage you to JOIN US at this years event.

This year we are also organising special BIG LEMON COACH to APPLE LAND (and back to Brighton) TICKETS at a reduced price of just £49, availble HERE.

Your help in getting this bus filled up with us to reduce the footprint of the event would be greatly appreciated.

Background..

In 2013 we started a new scrumping movement in Somerset to save as many apples as possible from going to waste there, and make our own delicious JUICE & CIDER. It was 8 of us a year at first – incredibly fun but challenging to make a difference to the untold mega tons of Apples that go unharvested all over the west of England.

We have had so much moral support and invitations to take Apples from people since then. People want their apples put to good use & there are countless orchards no longer harvested that need picking... Whats more - the freindships and benfiicial new realtionships that grow when we engage in this kind of meaningful collaborative activity change the world.

We want to see a future with more harvest festivals.

Apples represent the most abundant source of natural sugar we have in this country – from apples we can make so many great things! From nutritional super foods like cyder vinegar to the most indulgent baked things and the most sustainable alcoholic drink in the world – real cyder.

This Apple harvest festival is about the revival of community harvesting and collaborative production - to make better use of these wonderful fruits in all their glorious colours, tastes and and texture.

To explore and return to more Orchard Ways..

We have 5 years of experience only and do not profess to be experts but we will share everything that we know and we hope that this will make a difference to our collective ability to make the most of this incredible APPLE DROP that is gifted to all beings in this land of ours, every year.

We can learn and share how to care for these orchards together and revivce the l;ost culture that surround these prolific human tree landscapes.

The best time to harvest and press Apple juice is always last year... the second best time is this coming autumn..!

Hope you can join the annual adventure in APPLELAND!!
