What we make
For five years now we have been harvesting gardens and orchards, large and small to raise money to build our community orchards.
Along the way, teams of volunteers have enjoyed outdoor exercise and collected fruit that would otherwise have gone to waste. Not for nothing is our trading name “ECO”.
We make apples and pears into :
- Fresh juice for immediate consumption – a dividend for volunteers on the day
- Pasteurised apple juice in various flavours
o Red top, sharp apple (e.g. bramleys)
o White top, general mixed apples (eaters, cookers and cider apples)
o Green top, 50/50 apples and pears
o Gold top, single apple/orchard specials (e.g. Gloucester Underleaf from Nastend)
- Cider, brewed over winter and bottled in April
- Perry, similarly.
From 2016, we will also have a range of jams, based on our maturing plums, damsons, and quince trees in Coneygree Orchard to go with the dependable blackcurrants and raspberries.
