Traditional Orchards Study Day
A Gwynedd Branch Study Day on Traditional Orchards on Saturday 16th October 2010
Once a common sight within the landscape, the traditional orchard habitat is now under serious threat and the extent of traditional orchards in Wales has declined sharply since the mid-20th century.
The venue for the day is a restored barn at Maes-y-Porth, near Brynsiencyn on Anglesey, home of Alison and David Lea-Wilson. They have a wonderful walled garden with many productive old fruit trees. David produces about 300 bottles of apple juice each year and will demonstrate the press, and there will be apple juice to sample.
