IN SEASON SEPTEMBER…APPLES

A true British staple – sweet, versatile & full of nutrition, apples are ripe for picking in September.

In the UK there are over 2,000 varieties of apple, all with their own unique characteristics – different colours, shapes, textures & tastes. With heritage varieties seeing a renaissance in cider-making in recent years. Our very own suppliers Wrenbury Cider have recently launched a limited-edition ‘Dappled Apple Cider’ using the traditional Kingston Black variety.

We’ve all heard the old saying ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’ & with apples being packed with Vitamins A & C supporting immunity, as well as dietary fibre & antioxidants, you could call apples the classic superfood. There are so many ways to enjoy apples as part of your daily diet, sweet, savoury & the perfect snack on the go.

In our farm shop here at Cheerbrook we have lots of delicious apple-based products. Here are a few of our favourites:

Ollies Orchard Apple Juices – Hand pressed, single variety apple juices, produced on Eddisbury Fruit Farm in Tarporley.

Berry Fresh Bakery Classic Apple Chutney – Produced in Malpas, Cheshire,

Pork & Apple Sausages – Lovingly prepared by our skilled butchers, our infamous Cheerbrook pork sausage with the addition of tangy apple.
