Harrowbarrow and Metherell Community Orchard

    With the help of local people, we've created a traditional orchard of 24 trees between the villages of Harrowbarrow & Metherell- all old Tamar Valley varieties, with another 80 planned for next year. As the orchard establishes, events will be held such as grafting workshops, apple pressing and wassailing. Funding to set up the orchard has come from the East Cornwall Local Action Group.
