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)"

Visit from l’Association de l’Ordre de Tiron,
6th July 2011


These 7 visitors came from Thiron-Gardais in central France, where the Tironensian order of monks was begun. Lindores Abbey was a Tironensian abbey, and the culture of orchard-planting which is so rich in Newburgh was begun in Thiron 900 years ago. The visitors were interested in the Abbey, the Community Orchard, the Museum, Denmylne Castle and one of our long orchard gardens. They were keen to establish cultural links and exchanges with Newburgh.
