Courtneys Orchard Wassail 2021

by EdataChase Courtnyes
Every January, we would usually attend our local village Wassail, but covid...

So this year we had our own family wassail in our orchards.

We blessed the trees, drank mulled cider and scared off the evil spirits in the trees (probably with our singing alone, we may need a but more practise for next year). If you have a fruit tree in your garden, why not lively up an otherwise dull January by having your own at home wassail?

Get the family involved and join in our this ancient tradition.

Leftover Apple Pulp

After crushing and pressing our apples, we bag up the apple pulp and take it up to the hill to the local farmers to feed his pigs and cows. Nothing goes to waste.
