Below the Dabinets are some of our Brown's apples which make a good blend with the Dabinets. We do have a small number of Michelin which are the yellow skinned variety. The variety of trees we have are: 1 Major, 1 Somerset Redstreak, I Tremlett's Bitter, 3 Tom Putt, 4 Michelin, 17 Katy, 19 Brown's and 27 Black Dabinets.
We also have an orchard of 36 heritage varieties with wonderful names such as Sops of Wine, Pitmarston Pineapple, Chiver's Delight, Peasgood Nonsuch, Lady Sudeley etc. Our press is hand made using a 15 ton bottle jack which presses upwards.
