What about British apples?

The environmental benefits of growing organic fruit can be cancelled out when apples have come half way across the world. Currently, 70% of organic food sold in UK supermarkets comes from overseas - even at the height of the British apple season, more than half the apples on sale in most big supermarkets are imported, with some travelling 20,000km before getting here.

As a nation we’ve become used to getting oranges from California, asparagus from Peru. It’s genuinely unusual for people to experience a world class, locally sourced product. Our apples ARE world class!

We can grow amazing fruit here in the UK – let’s stand up for British produce and enjoy a traditional British drink. Cool cider!

Cider & Yoga

Two words we never thought we’d see together! Yes, cider and yoga; it’s a thing.
We would recommend that you seriously warm up before trying this at home.
Not sure about our very own Big Bear attempting Downward Dog… The dungarees may have to be swapped for a Lycra bodysuit.
If want to relax and haven’t got a yoga mat to hand, don’t worry. Grab a glass of cool cider instead.
Cider is like life – chill for best results…
