A Fruitful Day at Lochore Meadows

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

In 2009 a community orchard was created at Lochore Meadows Country Park within sight of the original kitchen gardens of the 16th century Lochore House.

Thirty pear, plum and apple trees were planted with the assistance of Inverkeithing High School’s John Muir Award Group, now we want to celebrate their first Birthday!

The core of the day, Saturday 16th October, is based around two activities based at the Country Park Centre and run by Fife Coast and Countryside Trust.

For those who wish to tantalise their taste buds, there will an opportunity to juice your own apples,starting at 10.30 - just remember to bring containers for the juice! From 1.30pm Polly Murray from Auchtermuchty will be running what we hope will be the first of many cider-making courses. Places for this three-hour course are very limited, so please book in advance – Tel. 01592 656080 or online, www.fifecoastandcountrysidetrust.co.uk

Countryside Ranger Dallas Seawright says “There has been a huge resurgence of interest in orchards and their fruit and it is vitally important for the biodiversity of the site, providing habitat for a wide range of birds, bumblebees, butterflies and a whole range of other insects. In addition, there are links between the historic past of the site and many initiatives such as the Slow Food Movement, school orchards, Common Ground’s National Apple Day, and farmers’ markets with their local food.”

How to get there – from the B920 between Ballingry and Lochgelly, drive to the only mini roundabout in Crosshill. This is the entrance to the Country Park. Drive along the entrance way; the Park Centre and car park are at the end.

If you have any queries, contact Lochore Meadows Country Park by ‘phoning 01592 583343.
