This weekend, join the Big Apple, an event which celebrates the autumn countryside on the Marcle Ridge in Herefordshire.

Visitors will be able to learn about cider making from local producers, each with their own style, scale and method of production.

There’ll also be the chance to see cider fruit and perry pears being grown, milled and pressed in different orchard settings, at Woodredding, Avenue Cottage, Westons and Gregg’s Pit.

This is a fantastic seasonal opportunity to enjoy this special corner of Herefordshire through its tradition of orchards, apples and cider making.

Each year, we welcome visitors to a number of our farms and orchards which are open specially for this one weekend."
