Volunteer opportunity: Home farm orchard day Saturday 24th August 2019 10.30am - 3.30pm

 Registration is closed for this event

Saturday 24th August - Apple picking at Stanmer 10.30am - 3.30pm

Join Bryn in our beautiful Home Farm orchard for at Stanmer where more apples are ready for picking. Apple Day is but a month away so we'll be pressing them this coming Sunday to make delicious fresh and pasteurised juice. We'll also be collecting windfalls for making our favourite Stanmer Scrumpy. We may pick  in our other Stanmer orchards on the day if needed.

IMPORTANT: Session not suitabale for anyone with a wasp allergy.

You don't have to come for the whole session. Kids welcome.

Practical stuff

Please dress for outdoor/rough work - tough shoes/boots, clothes appropriate to the weather, and bear in mind there will be some nettles and brambles so good to protect your legs/ankles with long trousers if you can bear it if it's hot! Please bring work gloves if you have any. Please bring a packed lunch (we can provide apples!), and any snacks/drinks you need to sustain you for the day. There is a cafe in the village too.


We will meet 10.30am at the Fruit Factory which is in Stanmer village almost opposite the cafe. See 2nd map down via this link:


If you come later you can find us in Home Farm orchard (also on the map).
If you get lost, please call Bryn.

If you get to Home Farm orchard and there is no-one there please call Bryn, we will be nearby in another Stanmer orchard!

Please check emails night before in case we have to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances/poor weather.

Hope you can help!
