Sunnyhaye Fruit Farm, at Woodbury Salterton, invited visitors to enjoy a free day out in the countryside.

Visitors were invited to celebrate the arrival of spring and take in the tranquil atmosphere of Sunnyhaye Fruit Farm at owners Andrea Beech and Alan Smith’s apple blossom open day.

The farm, at Sanctuary Lane, in Woodbury Salterton, is a specialist producer of organic apples and juices. Its other products include cider, honey, spring water and vegetables, plus the distribution of imported citrus fruits.

The farm is not usually open to the public, but on apple blossom day visitors, dog walkers and horse riders are invited to walk among the trees, safe in the knowledge the grounds are free from chemicals.

The aim of the day is to hear about the farm’s latest developments, plus enjoy a free day out in the countryside.

The farm holds various taster and visitor days throughout the year.

Alan Smith, farm co-director, said: “From September, Sunnyhaye Fruit Farm sells class one apples and fine apple juice.

“All our apples are grown on the farm and we have our own bottling plant.

“We do not use synthetic chemicals in the production of our apples and apple juice.”

Recently, the farm was highly commended at the Soil Association Organic Festival in Bristol. Sunnyhaye was the only apple juice to be recognised in the non-alcoholic drinks class.

Sunnyhaye Fruit Farm sells ‘premium quality apples’, apple juice and cider, all grown, packed and bottled in Woodbury Salterton. Its products are certified by the Soil Association and the Vegetarian Society.

The farm supports active organic production in the community.
