“In a bumper year for apples such as this year, there is only so much apple pie and chutney that we can produce and it is a shame to let such lovely fruit go to waste, so the idea that my spare apples could contribute to a local co-operative in such a way really appeals. Taking my apples to the Surrey Garden Cider Company ticks all the sustainability boxes for me and provides a wonderfully delicious windfall, some 6 months after harvest. So, next Spring I can look forward to a few personalised bottles of my own but I’m also delighted to hear that the cider is now available at The Lightbox.”
