I got invited to come and pick some cider apples at a friends smallholding if I wanted to learn about cider making. My friends dad has a great wealth of knowledge in cider making and has done it for many years, so I thought he might be a good man to learn from - plus he's got a lot of cider apple trees!

|Shake the tree!|
|The little tractor took them all away|
The plan is to leave these apples for a few weeks before we scrat and press them towards the end of November - I'm looking forward to it!
