Get ready for a thoroughly apple-themed day at this annual seasonal celebration in and around the orchards.

For the first time, the Brighton Permaculture Trust bar will be proudly serving their own Stanmer Scrumpy made with apples from their scrumping project.
  • The ever popular Apple Café – staffed and cooked for by volunteers, using fruit scrumped from around Brighton & Hove and quality ingredients donated by Infinity Foods
  • Orchard and plot tours throughout the day

The Permaculture Trust's Fruit Factory & Fresh Juice
The Permaculture Trust's all new Fruit Factory is being built – hooray! The Fruit Factory will provide a home to the scrumping project, allowing them to process up to 40 tons of unwanted fruit from local gardens and orchards into delicious products while talking to the passing public about what truly local food is all about.

Come and see how progress is going, have a go at using a traditional press, and watch the BPT team make huge quantities of juice throughout the day from apples from their orchards and scrumped from Brighton & Hove. Enjoy a cup of the freshest pressed juice to quench your thirst.

Apple Day is kindly sponsored by Infinity Foods
