The mighty apple was celebrated at a day all about the fruit just outside of Sudbury on Saturday.
Visitors pressed a variety of apples they brought to Wheldon’s Fruit Farm to make juice. There was no charge for the service which was provided by Transition Sudbury.
Jane Hatton from the environmental group said the day was a great success: “We had a steady flow of people and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves,” she said.
“We wanted people to bring their apple windfalls and press them into juice – lots of people had a couple of bags but some had trugs full of apples.”
People also got advice on fruit growing and took part in games and competitions.
