Hand in Hand with Nature ...
In 2016 we planted our orchard with Cornish heritage Apple varieties, a range of different shapes, colours and flavours that celebrate our apple history. We now have 200 fruit trees, apple, cherry, pear, plum, quince and medlar. Our idea was to turn our harvest into a range of snacks for adults and children that would promote healthy eating with just naturally occurring sugar, nothing added and using only Cornish food miles. We worked on developing a range of apple fruit leathers using organic apples and Apple Shreds were created.
Cornwall is a global force in the food and drink industry with a fantastic local food culture and we as an artisan food producer are fortunate to be part of that.
“The inspiration behind the Apple Natural tree logo was a picture my son created when he was three and a half. I just love the colour, the shapes, the design and creativity. It was October and we had just bought the first trees for our orchard and at pre-school they were celebrating the annual Apple Day for the apple harvest, picking apples from one of the teacher's trees to make apple crumble and they all created a tree picture...lots of paper and glue! He has amazing artistic skills and one of his influences in pre-school was his teacher, the brilliant local artist Nicola Plummer.”
