apple harvest

Today’s local food post is about my visit to a fruit farm during the apple harvest. It was Braeburns, the last of the season, and the farm was Greenway, which covers 40 acres near Herstmonceaux, Sussex. The dwarf trees were straining under the weight of their fruit, which looked beautifully red within the green leaves. But for the fruit pickers, it looked like hard work. The tractor driver is the owner, Graham Love. The one in black and white is being used for the Lewes Food Market’s monthly booklet which highlights stall holders from the Friday Market.
