Orchard Link

Saving Traditional Orchards since 1998

Orchard Link is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit organisation established in 1998 by apple and cider enthusiasts in south Devon concerned about the rapid decline of traditional orchards – with all their environmental and cultural value.

Profound changes in the local agricultural economy have meant the loss of both orchard knowledge and the means to make productive use of crops. Orchard Link offers its members technical advice, a programme of events, courses and activities, and makes key items of equipment – mills, presses and pasteurisers – available for hire.
