One of the best things about autumn is the apple harvest. Essex has many fruit farms, a number of which specialise in growing apples. During September and October there will be a number of events across the county celebrating the apple, tied in to National Apple Day. They are a great way for children to discover where their food comes from and to enjoy the last rays of autumn sunshine before winter sets in.
We will list a number of apple days here, as we find out about them or are told about them. Do keep checking back, as we’ll be adding events as we find out about them. If you know of any others happening, do let us know by clicking here, and we will add them to the list. Happy munching!
