Come and treat yourself to some of our homegrown and homemade produce from our 'barn-stand'!
Everything from our Random Apple juice and our range of 'foragers drinks' . . . to jams, jellies, fruit cheeses . . . even our own signature syrups - and honey from the busy bees in our orchard. Perfect store-cupboard and hamper fillers!
Every Sunday 10am - midday from September to Christmas
Public pressing days
Bring us your homegrown apples and swap them for juice - and if you'd like you can stay and have a go at pressing!
Check out 'The Random Apple Company' page for more information
Please note - we unfortunately cannot accommodate huge numbers of visitors in The Applery - so we have to limit access on these days to only people bringing apples to swap. We are always looking for volunteers to help us press though so if you're 16 or over and fancy spending a day doing something a little bit different . . . get in touch with Sarah to arrange a date.
Sunday 14 October 10am - 1pm
Friday 2 November (half term) 10am - 1pm
Saturday 10 November 10am - 1pm
If you can't make these dates we are happy to swap apples for juice every Sunday 10am - midday from September to end November (PLEASE NOTE: 7 and 21 October will be run by 'Nana Apple' so will operate on a 'receipt' system - once we've sorted through your apples to ensure they're all 'juice-able' we'll be in touch to confirm how much juice you'll be returned and when you can collect)
Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for up-to-the-minute information. Occasionally we run some really 'random' events . . . !
Orchard Festival (July 2018)
A celebration of epic proportions in the orchard: family picnics, plenty of apple juice, music by Undercover Live, The Bollington Ice Cream Company, croquet . . . and bubbles everywhere!
The Random Wassail (January 2016)
A private event in our own orchard for friends of The Random Apple Company who donated their apples during the previous season or helped us with pressing.
The custom of wassailing dates back to pagan times to drive out evil spirits from the apple trees and 'bless' them for the forthcoming year's harvest. Now a much revived and widely recognised event, mainly in the orchards of the south of England, we gave celebrations our own 'random' twist with local morris dancers, folk singers, an atmospheric ceremony led by the 'Orchard King', a bonfire, family picnic spread . . . and of course plenty of hot mulled apple juice!
"What an authentic atmosphere! I felt like I was part of a secret apple worshipping cult - I'm now ready to pledge my allegiance to the King of the Orchard!"
