THE 2022 APPEAL IS NOW CLOSED. TOGETHER WE COLLECTED 18 TONS OF UNWANTED APPLES!
Normally around 70% of the apples we use for cider are gifted to us from gardens and private orchards in East Sussex. These apples would otherwise go to waste, rotting on the orchard floor. In 2022 ALL of our apples arrived this way.
If you have an apple tree or orchard we would love to have any unwanted fruit for our cider production. We also take pears. All you need to do is bring them to us in Framfield. We’ll take any variety and they can even be a little bruised (though not rotten). Every large bag of apples given to us is exchanged for a FREE bottle of Bignose & Beardy cider. We launch our Apple Appeal every September. Sign up to our newsletter below for for news on this year’s appeal.
Please bring your apples to the Cidery at: Upper Brookhouse Farmhouse, Brookhouse Lane, Framfield, TN22 5QJ
It is the last turn on the left before the bottom of the lane. Follow the drive round to the right and come though the gate. The Cidery is on your right.
If we are not in to give you some cider, please leave a note or email us so we can send you some.
