Join us to celebrate the apple harvest on October 1st at our first ever Applefest.
Taking place at Hill Farm in Swanmore there will be plenty of apple-based entertainment during the day, from 10am to 4pm.
If you’ve had a good bunch of apples from your own tree this year, bring them along to be pressed and bottled ready to drink at home.
Perhaps you have always wanted to know the processes involved in producing the delicious Hill Farm Apple Juice? Come along to see and hear about what happens from picking through to labeling.
There’s plenty for the little ones to enjoy too. They can get creative trying some sand art, plus there will be tractor rides and face painting too.
Live music will be the perfect accompaniment to a spot of shopping, with Hampshire Farmers’ Market members setting up shop for the day. Coming along will be, Berceries, Biltong Demon, Catch Isle of Wight, Mrs B’s Bees, FNK, Mill Farm Organic, Jake’s Artisan Foods and Purbeck Ice Cream, to name just a few. Plus there will be other Hampshire producers on the day too, including The Grilled Cheese Co, Burley Fudge, The Tipsy Pigs and Pre Punjabi.
Hill Farm Apple Juice will of course be offering samples and a plethora of different drinks to buy too.
It’s going to be a fruity festival not to be missed and it’s absolutely free!
