Buy and Sell Apples - Harvestline

Have you lots of apples to spare? Or do you need lots of apples for juicing or cider making? This section of the website acts as a notice board for individuals in and around Devon to get in touch with each other. Just complete and submit the form. We will then add it to the listings below. You are then free to contact other potential buyers or sellers and make your own arrangement.

Some important small print
The information you give in the form will be made visible on this website page, so please only provide details that you are willing to have in the public domain.
Orchard Link’s role is simply to provide space on this noticeboard for your listings. We do not verify any of the information provided or make any claims about quality, quantity, value or arrangements. Orchard Link plays no part in any agreement or contract that might be made.
Harvest Line will be open from August to November and we will remove listings after each harvest season is over, but you are welcome to resubmit for the following season. If you wish to have your listing removed or updated before then, please contact us.

Please fill out the form in full, giving as much information as possible, including how much you are willing to pay for the apples if you are looking to buy or how much you want per ton or per sack if you are selling. If you are able please list the varieties if you know them or failing that say if the apples are ciders, cookers or deserts. The more information you can provide the better your chances are for success.

Also if you are looking to source apples remember you are more likely to find apples if you are able to pick them yourself.

Finally, remember that Orchard Link's membership is concentrated in South Devon and this service is in the main for those in and around Devon.

Should you be thinking of listing on this page and you are located outside the Devon area please consider carefully if this is for you. Traveling distances, costs of transport and the increased costs of picking have to be thought about when putting a listing on this page.

For those who are located further away it is recommended you look source apples from orchards nearer to you. Commercial orchards may be willing to let individuals have the windfalls which can be used to make cider.

This service is primarily for the members of Orchard Link who live in Devon U.K. and although non members are welcome to post here this is as said above for those who live in and around Devon,  Please do not list here if you live outside the U.K.
