Herefordshire Food Charter. Healthy food for people, place and planet

little pomona open daySharing news below of Little Pomona's Open Day this Sunday in Bromyard - there are many more celebratory Apple Events over the next two weeks!

This post has a round up of most - which includes the Hereford AppleFest listings and others.  There's also more apple fun with the two Alliance cooking sessions with surplus produce for Ledbury and Hereford Food Banks and Larders.  Please continue to share these gleaning events, thanks.

From Pomona:

"Come and enjoy Hereford AppleFest with us during our Open Day this weekend!

 As this year's harvest swings into action, you're all invited to come behind the scenes and see how it happens on Sunday 8th October.

Everyone is very welcome. With the weather likely to take a more Autumnal turn, we'll be serving up mulled cider to keep the chills at bay.

🌳 Kicking off at 12pm, we will share news on the harvest so far at 1pm.

🍾 Our New Releases table will be back, including Now That Is Cider 2022, the cider we have crafted for AppleFest with our friends at @rosscider and @oliverscider , the first sighting of Art of Darkness 2021, and Thick Cut 2021 @lozfc 's love affair with Yarlington Mill among many others...

🍏 2pm, there'll be free tours of the cidery, so you can see what goes on behind the magic Tasting Room door, including some perry pear pressing!

And 3pm it's back into the Tasting Room for our new releases and a little cheese & cider pairing,

🔥 We will have warming soup and light bites on offer throughout, including special Cheese or Meat Small Plates, plus apple juice for the dedicated drivers and the young.

🚗 If you're coming from afar, do check out our Where To Stay and Taxi pages, and get in touch if you have any queries.
