Apples at the core of Holifield Farm open day
4:00pm Saturday 19th October 2013 in News
Apples were at the core of Holifield Farm Project’s open day.
The Gweek day centre for people with special needs opened its doors to the general public so they could find out more about the work carried out there.
Torrential rain during the morning led to some hasty reshuffling of plans and meant some of the activities could not go ahead.
Fortunately the indoor event proved popular, featuring as it did apple pressing in the food preparation room.
Those attending were able to press their own apple juices. This was thirsty work, but happily at the end they could reward their efforts with a long drink of the resulting juice.
This could be accompanied by free home baked cakes and enjoyed over a chat.
By lunchtime the rain had stopped, meaning visitors were able to go outside to feed the chickens and the cows, pick more apples and perform other farm jobs.
Others stayed behind and made cardboard ‘apple art’.
Sharon Mackay, from Holifield Farm based at Bonallack Lane, said: “It was a great day enjoyed by all, and with lots of bottles of golden apple juice to show for it too.”
