Alford Manor House Apple Day

Apple Day is now becoming a busy day when you will be able to see a very wide range of locally grown apples on display in the marquee. Our expert will be able to guide you around the garden to see our collection of Lincolnshire apple trees and explain how we have learnt to prune them to encourage good growth. Taste our own apple juice, chutneys, jams, jellies and baked dishes along with locally produced ciders. You will be able to purchase the preserves and recipes for the baked items. Then visit the tearoom for our special ‘apple' menu.
