Farmeco has planted around 4500 fruit and nut trees in an edible woodland. Apple trees are included in this area in addition to an agro forestry area elsewhere on the far. The planting list includes over 20 different varieties of heritage apples. We harvest, press and juice the apples and also sell some for eating. We have also established a community cider club.
What does the cider club do?
The cider club holds regular monthly meetings and occasional community events, including an Apple Day and Wassail (to promote a good harvest).
- Cider tasting including food pairings
- Expert guidance in making cider
- All stages of making cider from pressing the apples to bottling and maturing (and drinking of course!)
- Tree pruning
- Apple harvesting
- Visiting other producers and clubs
- Preparing other drinks such as country wines or infused spirits
- Annual cider club celebratory picnic and bbq where we enjoy quaffing our delicious brew!
How much does it cost?
The cost of membership is £12 per year. The fee helps cover the costs of expert advice, equipment and processing.
When are the meetings?
Meetings mainly take place at Farmeco, Home Farm, Screveton. Car share lifts from Nottingham or Newark can be arranged.
