Sunday is Apple Day

Apple Day is on Sunday 22nd October, and will have a whole load of exciting games, prizes, activities and competitions!

This Sunday October, Hall Farm will be hosting The Great Apple Bake Off as part of our Apple Day celebrations!

We’re calling on you lot to show us your most tantalisingly tasty apple bakes to put before our judges!
Your bake can be anything from a classic apple pie to a pork and Cider pasty.

The only rules are: It has to be baked, it has to contain apples, and of course, it has to be delicious!

Get creative with it or keep it simple- it’s totally up to you!

We’ll have a junior bake off and an adult one, so don’t be put off! Any age or ability can enter!

Entry is just £1 per person, which includes access to our orchard as many times as you like to collect fresh apples FREE of charge! You can practice as much as you can eat!

The winner will receive a prize selection, a trophy, and the glory of being the best apple baker around!

The event is free entry for all, but any donations made will be put straight in to the funds to improve our Care Farm facilities for kids, the elderly, and those with mental health issues, and Special mental and physical needs.

We’ll be accepting entries right up to the big day, so get in touch to let us know you’ll be entering!
