Devon is well known for its many apple orchards - and its cider, so it is fair to say that apples and orchards are an important part of local culture.  The Tavy & Tamar Apple Group is a non-profit group of local people passionate about apple trees, juice and other kindred liquids!  They encourage the rejuvenation of local orchards through best practice and sustainable management, but their dream is to see local apples sold across the board in South West supermarkets. Bringing back local apples as a viable business will decrease transport miles and enable the community to access the fresh quality juice that is their natural heritage.

The Tavy & Tamar Apple Group is based on the Bere Peninsula in West Devon and is mainly concerned with orchards on the Peninsula, formerly a prolific area for fruit production in the last century. We have connections with many of the apple growers in the area and over the border in Cornwall, including the team at Cotehele, an historic National Trust property near Calstock.
