Are you a commercial orchard grower in Wales? Tyfu Cymru is hosting a 100% funded practical workshop on apple orchard maintenance with John Worle at Brooksgrove Farm, Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, SA61 1XR.
Practical Apple Orchard Workshop
6th March 2019 | Brooksgrove Farm
John has many years experience in the cider industry and in 2006 set up his own cider apple tree nursery in Herefordshire and since that time has grown over half a million bare rooted trees for growers who were mainly planting with new contracts to supply the large cider companies in Hereford and Somerset.
The National Association of Cider Makers employ John for advisory work to their growers. Due to the interest in craft cider making John has decided that this year he will grow a selection of varieties which he believes will be of particular interest to this market, together with the other new addition of perry pears and a small selection of trees for those interested in producing apple juice.
