The inaugural meeting and Ploughman’s supper of the Yarlington Cider Federation was recently held in the Village Hall.
All those present have planted Yarlington Mill apple trees in their gardens during 2018 to return the tree to the Village from whence it came, being first discovered here, growing out of a wall by the water wheel, during the late 19th century.
Yarlington Mill is grown extensively in cider making regions where it is favoured by growers due to it’s upright growth, heavy cropping and high yield. The resulting cider is a medium bittersweet vintage with a good flavour and strong aroma. The fruit drops from the tree when fully ripe in November .
