real ale and cider bar (at least 2 real ales including Gringo's Gold from the local Botley brewery. Cider from 146 cider (made from our apples, won a prize at Southampton beer and cider festival)

apple exhibition and sales (Sorry no attempted fruit identification, I will be very busy on the day it takes me too long to ID apples for free and I'm not good enough at it to charge a fee! attempted self ID from our books and the exhibition is available)

afternoon singaround led by trad folk superstar Rob Mills

music session led by fiddle legend Cath Watkins

lunchtime ploughmans with decent ham or Lyburn real cheese from Winchester

hog roast from about 5 pm

vegetarian alternative (potato curry and lentil and chick pea curries, possibly onion bhajiis)

ALL PROFITS (after hall rent, cost of beer + food etc) TO TOOLS FOR SELF RELIANCE a marvellous charity which refurbishes old tools and sends them to villages in Africa to help people work themselves out of poverty

look forward to seeing old friends and new.

Welcome to the Fruitwise Heritage Apples blog. Feel free to leave a comment, I will try to respond where appropriate but FAQs may have been already addressed in my YouTube videos or the http://www.fruitwise.net site. Remember, I am not a professional fruit grower, only an enthusiastic experienced amateur. Any and all advice is offered freely and with sincere good faith, but remember I might be mistaken, and my preferences,
soil and climate may be different from yours which would diminish the relevance of my advice, so check other sources before acting. In any event, I am not responsible for any outcomes!

Kind regards to all.
