Thatchers Community Orchard Project

The Thatchers Community Orchard project is an initiative that encourages local communities and charities to create their very own orchard. The project aims to support the world around us, the local community – and of course our passion for apple trees!


As part of our 2021 apple tree planting season, we introduced our very first community orchard project and provided 124 trees to local community groups and charities – from Cornwall to Nottingham!
