Orchards sparkling in the frost

We love this time of year with the crisp mornings, and orchards sparkling in the frost.

As well as the trees looking spectacular with their fresh white covering, the winter chill that the frosty weather brings is actually really important for the apples.

The cold temperatures during the trees’ dormant period helps them reset ready for a period of sustained growth in Spring. And that’s when the orchard year really begins, with the aromatic apple blossom making its appearance. Before we know it, the fruit will be ripening and the cider makers preparing to welcome apples into the mill once again.
