Apple Picking 2010
The trees have produced a good crop of apples again this year and they are now ready for harvesting and, after the great success of last years trial run, will be used to produce Worcester College Apple Juice.
By the end of the day a dozen trays of apples have been picked by the team and are stored in the greenhouse overnight ready for transportation to Waterperry tomorrow.
