There are currently 4 community orchards in East Devon which are looked after by Community Development, Countryside and the local community.

The Knapp , Sidmouth - Planted over 15 years ago the orchard is now well established and hosts a popular apple pressing day each October.

Bidmead, Exmouth - The orchard aims to create a focal point for the community and a habitat for wildlife.  The orchard hosts a wassail each January.

Moormead, Budleigh -  This orchard has been embraced by the community and several events take place here each year - including a Blossom celebration. Thanks to the nature of the site and the support of the community this orchard has borne fruit in its first years.

Millwey, Axminster - Our most recently planted orchard is fairing well and will be celebrating its first anniversary in March 2018 by making bug hotels with the Countryside Education ranger.
