Orchard Conference

17th November 2014

Members of the Gloucestershire Orchard Trust instigated the first Orchard Conference at the Three Counties Showground Centre at Malvern. There was a near capacity attendance of 100 from many parts of Britain. All stand space was taken. Your correspondent missed out on showcasing his spirits because he was too late in applying - as always!

Technical experts, modern fruit farmers, cider makers and marketeers all had their say. It was good to see some passion injected into proceedings by fruit juice, cider and perrymaker Dave Kaspar. He met with some measured responses from 'the Trade'. It was a useful debate begging a further event on the same lines maybe in a couple of years time.
