Community Orchard

Transition Tynedale has access to apple trees within Hexham (and its immediate environs) that are not currently pruned or harvested by the landowner. TT volunteers do pruning in the winter and harvest apples in the Autumn. Apples are given away at Hexham Farmers’ Market either whole or as fresh apple juice.

TT volunteers have even built our first apple press, which ran very well in 2011 and is available for individuals and groups to hire.
