Caradon Orchard Group – Welcome!

Orchards in the Caradon area

Orchards were once an integral part of our agricultural landscape and formed an important seasonal food source in the days before fruit was readily available in greengrocers and supermarkets.

  • Caradon Orchard Group (COG) members are planting proven local and traditional varieties of apples and ensuring that those surviving old orchards continue to thrive or are rejuvenated to be brought back into useful production and as an important habitat for wildlife.
  • COG’s members are able to use its mobile apple press, bottling, and other equipment.
  • COG promotes the importance of local orchards in our community by establishing links with schools and other local groups.
  • COG organises apple events and training (such as grafting, tree pruning and fruit processing).
