Shropshire Apple Trust

Description:

Shropshire Apple Trust is a constituted community trust, based in Coalbrookdale within the Ironbridge Gorge in Shropshire. It is open to anyone who shares its objectives of promoting apple culture in the widest possible sense.

The Trust operates at all levels, helping to revive interest in local fruit trees, orcharding and the practical use of the apple harvest to produce juices for drinking and conversion to products such as cider and cider vinegar.

The Trust works to raise awareness of the importance of traditional orchards with their associated wildlife and the threats posed to the richness of traditional apple culture by increasing reliance on a few modern cultivars.

The events it organises, including the use of its own one ton traditional twin-screw apple press at an annual Apple Day, are seen as playing an important part in building community capacity.

For more information, including contact details, please follow the link to visit their website.
