So what does the harvesting process involve?
First we hand pick a few apples in boxes for use as eating and cooking apples in the hotel.
Then we gently hit the trees with a stick so that the apples fall to the floor.
After that we pick the apples from the ground, separating the good apples from the bad ones putting the good apples in the sacks, (not the bad ones of course.)
Then comes the hard part; humping the sacks to the nearest farm track.
The tractor then takes the sacks of apples from the farm to a central point, normally the hotel car park.
Then Antonio comes to collect the apples and takes them away to be transformed into the lovely apple juice we serve in the hotel.
