Apple theme to Orton Farmers’ Market on Saturday 13 October


Apple pressing by NCOG

There will be an Autumnal feel and a definite apple theme to Orton Farmers’ Market on Saturday 13 October.

Visitors will have an opportunity to get their apples identified by members of the North Cumbria Orchard Group (NCOG) and, if they bring their windfalls along with some containers, there’s a chance to make their own fresh apple juice with the NCOG press.

“This apple event, especially the windfall juicing, has proved really popular in recent years,” says Leanne Duerden, Market Co-ordinator.  “The added benefit is that the pulp won’t be wasted either but will go as animal feed to local farmers who trade on the Market!”

Also, we welcome back the popular WhyNot Alpacas and their four legged friends with warm clothes ready for this winter!  Plus, warm your cockles with Ron and Angela Barker’s High Cup Wines!
The Market features up to 35 local food, drink and craft producers, all of them based within 50 miles of Orton and several of them living within just a couple of miles of the village.  As well as top quality meat (lamb, pork, venison, veal, beef and meat products), there will also be local eggs, preserves, bread, cakes and smoked fish alongside herbs, oils, fruit and vegetables, granola, chocolates and much more.

Best wishes
