Sorry we can't do any juice or cider apples this year. 2012 has been a very difficult year for us with my serious leg injury in June from which I am not quite recovered and with weather so appalling that its effect on agriculture of all kinds from honey to cereal has become a  major news story. We had no plums, no pears, drastically reduced crops of many apples.

We hope for better things and a much better information flow in 2013.
