INVITE

Join Harry Appleseed & the all the Old Tree brewers for our 4th Somerset Apple Rescue festival!!

The Somerset apple forecast the year is ABUNDANCE by all accounts and we couldn't be more exctied about this years adventure >>

We are returning to one of the Somersets most beautiful orchards in West Bradley – to attempt, for the first time... to gather and press ALL OF THE GLORIOUS APPLES in this prolific cyder orchard! For the past years this has been impossible – there have been too many Apples here for us to press them all, but this year we are taking a bigger press to the orchard and throwing a bigger celebration and are confident that we can transform the full bounty of this orchard into golden APPLE JUICE with you!!

WHAT YOU'LL GET

Three delicious vegetarian meals a day and all you can drink Old Tree drinks in exchange for your help picking and pressing apples with us

Live music and story telling around the fire with stawbales in the evening

Headspace with a yoga class in a huge marquee at the top of the orchard – followed by a gongbath in the orchard at sundown

A dance party in the Marquee on saturday night

Chance to make loads of new freinds and spend a weekend in a beautiful organic Apple orchard

WHAT TO BRING

FANCY DRESS AND FREEDOM!!

We want to build a social movement to bring back harvest culture & make better use of this countries underharvested Apples... We need to make this irresitable to work!

(Before the Inclosure acts) we have a rich history of carnival & harvest festivals in this county and we want to help revive this liberating culture today. We have years experience making delicious cyder and vinegar and are commited to sharing all the ways of doing this with all who want to join us on this mission.. We need strength in numbers to build a network of small batch cyder breweries to bring back more harvest celebrations and make better use of all the localised apple bounties in the land! The way we can do this is by demonstrating how social and fun apple harvest festivals are and by bringing people together to celebrate the seasonal abundance and the great outdoors that orchards everywhere provide for us again... Combined with making the best real cyder/juice/ vinegar in all the land!....

SO this years theme is: DRESS UP to PRESS!

Dress to impress.

Wear ridiculous or beautiful cloths and come and roll around in mountains of Apples with us!!
Climb up one of the mighty apple trees and shake it wearing an office suit or a space suit?!

Come as a character from the modern world as if you have time travelled back in time to a traditional orchard harvest festival!! Come and bring back Apple culture with us in style – wear WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL GLORIOUS... & DRESS TO IMPRESS!!
