Funding boost for community orchard in Somerset
With almost 60 trees, the Buttercross Community Orchard is one of the most beautiful nature spots in Dunster.
Set up by the Dunster Parish Council and Crown Estate in 2011, the orchard is used to hold a range of events, which they often provide fresh apple juice and cider at.
With help from our 2020 Community Fund, the orchard recently purchased a new ladder and hydropress machine to make the apple pressing process more efficient.
Doug Challoner, Chair of the Buttercross Community Orchard, tells us more.
