Orchard Day

Food & Drink


Join us for this seasonal day, where we’ll be celebrating this most quintessential of autumn fruits!

Throughout the day, there will be talks by apple-grower and artisan cider-maker Cameron Smith from ‘Orchards of Husthwaite’ – at 11am, 1.30pm and 3pm – as well as opportunities to purchase cider produced within the traditional orchard village where, within the last decade, over a thousand trees have been planted to restore Husthwaite’s former heritage.

Orchards were first added to the Priority Habitats in 2007 and the orchard at Ryedale Folk Museum was planted the following year. The Orchard Day offers the ideal opportunity to discover the often-forgotten history of fruit growing in Yorkshire and the North, with a focus on local varieties.

Whilst you’re here, explore over twenty heritage buildings, including pretty cottage and kitchen gardens, and visit our farming area to meet the heritage animals.
