First in a series about converting an older orchard of an undesired apple variety over to a different variety which makes more sense. In this case, changing Bramleys that we canot sell to cider apples which we can sell with much less effort. Besides which, we feel like it. It is planned to follow the progress of the orchard makeover for several years.

NB Bramley s a fine heritage cooking apple, but it is a victim of its own success. So many people have a Bramley in their own or a neighbour's garden, they won't buy ours at the market. They re very vigorous trees and in my view will work over to productive cider apple varieties within 3 years. There is a growing market for cider aploes, also they are less work as it deosnlt matter if they are a bit scruffy and can be picked up of fthe ground. This will be uch less work for us. We were in our late thirties when we planted this orchard, now we are mid fifties and have other things to do, so we are being creative.
