Enjoy a sip of Glastonbury Tor's apple juice or cider

Apple in the orchard

Glastonbury Tor's orchards produce a wide variety of heritage apples. Our ranger team will be harvesting the crop to produce tasty juice and cider. Discover our story and find out how you can support our work.

Glastonbury Tor is famous across Britain, a place where legends are born. The Tor is steeped in history and mystery. Today, Glastonbury Tor remains a place of pilgrimage for thousands of visitors, just as people have for hundreds of years.

A lesser known fact about the area is its productive apple orchards hidden at the foot of the Tor. 

Glastonbury Tor orchards nurture a variety of apples from Newton Wonder, Yarlington Mill and rare Tidnor collections. The orchards are also important for birds, insects and other wildlife.  

Join us for apple picking days in October

We will be holding four family apple picking days this October in the orchards at the foot of Glastonbury Tor.

This is a great opportunity to enjoy a day outdoors, learn more about our orchards, apples and what we use them for.

The event will be held on 13-14 and 20-21 October between 10.30am and 3pm. Just pop by to get involved. We'll have our apple press onsite so you can try a sip of our juice.

Where can I taste the juice?

Our Glastonbury Tor apple juice is for sale at Brean Down and Fyne Court, by the glass or bottle and Cheddar Gorge information centre by the bottle.

The revenue we make from our juice and cider sales goes directly back into looking after Glastonbury Tor. Every time you take a sip of Glastonbury Tor cider or juice you are helping us look after this special place for ever for everyone.
