Transition Harborough commissioned a local craftsman to construct us a fruit press with a view to selling shares in it to allow families and communities to part own and have exclusive use on dates they have reserved.
We ran an Apple day for the first time in October 2011 and a bigger higher profile event in 2012 on the Market square and hope that this will become an established event in the towns calendar.
Check the Events page to see when this years is planned
It is hoped that we will manage to secure some land upon which a community Orchard can be planted which will mean that in future years we might be baking, pressing and fermenting our own locally grown apples and fruit!
