Join us for this unique Bramley Apple Baking Class and Orchard Visit and  experience the Beautiful Apple Blossom in Spring or the Apple harvest in September.

The Orchard Tour begins at 9.30 am at Rose’s Orchard with the Mackle Family who own the orchard and live here. The orchard is 5 minutes drive from the cookery school on the Armagh side of Moy in Collegeland Co. Armagh.

In Spring time you will get to see and smell the beautiful pink and white apple blossom and in the Autumn the apples will be on the trees ready for picking.

The orchard tour will last approximately 45 minutes and participants will then make their own way over to the cookery school for the baking class to begin straight after the orchard tour.

After tea, coffee and scones fresh from the oven the class begins with a demonstration of the recipes.

We bake from scratch using the best local ingredients and use a traditional griddle for the Potato Apple Bread.

You will make your own Fruit Soda Bread and scones and will have both to take home.
