Shout Outs:

We’d like to give a shout out to Oxford City Farm, based in Florence Park area, who are very new but looking to start joining the dots up between fruit tree owners and those that want access to fruit.

We’d also like to give a shout out to Rupert from Tiddly Pommes, who has a stall in East Oxford farmers market in harvest season, with pressed juice from unwanted apples of specific varieties. We’ll be trying to help each other out this year wherever possible, especially as there is likely to be so much unwanted fruit to work with!
