Apple Day 27/10

We will be holding our first Apple Day on Saturday October 27th from 12.00 to 5pm in the Parish Church Hall and grounds (Cupar Road). This will be to celebrate Newburgh's centuries-old heritage of apple growing, and there will be apple-based produce and home baking for sale along with recipes, participative Apple Art, blind fruit tasting, a fruit display and a fruit quiz, plus tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits. Admission will be free.There will also be a demonstration of apple pressing to make apple juice, using only the apples we have in stock. (Please do not bring apples for juicing: another date may be arranged for that)"
