Who we are

Orchard Link is a south Devon organisation set up in 1998 by a group of apple and cider enthusiasts concerned about the rapid decline of traditional orchards in the area.
We remain a volunteer-run, non-profit community organisation.

Bi-monthly committee meetings are normally held at the Church House Inn, Harberton; all members are most welcome to attend.  Meeting dates will be shown on the hire availability calendar (visible to current members who are logged into the site).  As a courtesy if you plan to attend, please let us know using the contact form.

Our purpose is to promote:

  • the restoration and extension of orchards by providing technical advice and support both to owners of existing trees and those planning to plant an area for the first time
  • the conservation of traditional local fruit varieties
  • the productive use of fruit crops for eating, juicing, cider making and cooking
  • the exchange of knowledge, skills and expertise
  • community involvement in orchard management, heritage and traditions.
