Orchard Day

Apples at Dudmaston

Help the garden team press the apples picked from our orchard and tuck into some seasonal treats supplied by local producers.

Press our apples or bring your own

The garden team will be using a press to squeeze the juice from the apples picked from our orchard. Sample some Dudmaston apple juice and take a few bottles home as a souvenir of your day. Grow your own at home? Bring your own apples in and we'll press them for you. Donations towards the up keep of the orchard will be welcomed. Please remember to bring along your own bottles or containers to store your juice in.

Family crafts

Choose a winning apple and turn it into a Mr or Mrs Applehead using our craft materials. Can you give it a funny face? Enter it into our competition for the chance to win a great prize. A small charge applies to craft actvities.

Beekeeping

Our resident beekeeper Alison will be showing you how Dudmaston's bees help to sustain the orchard and the rest of the flora and fauna on the estate.

A taste of autumn

Shropshire stallholders will be bringing their produce to Dudmaston for you to sample and buy. Choose from a selection of cheeses, cakes, jams and pickles. The Orchard tearoom will be serving up seasonal treats including their much loved apple cake for everyone to enjoy.
