Phoning about apples?
We buy local apples for making our Carse o Gowrie Apple Juice, Cairn o Mohr Vintage, Pictish, Mixed Fruit, Mulled and Meadowsweet Ciders. We pay 20p per kg either in cash or any of our Cairn o Mohr drinks. Apples must be ripe (you can dent the skin, pips usually brown and tastes not sour), with no mould, rot or bad cuts. Windfalls are ok if sound.
This year we are only accepting eating apples, thank you. We accept your delicious eating apples from 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday and from noon to 4pm at weekends and pay 20p per kilo. Please do not bring cookers as we will sadly have to let you leave with them still in your car.
If you pick the apples before fully ripe, store them in open boxes or buckets and remove any bad ones before bringing them in ripe. Plastic bags are ok for transporting but make apples sweat and mould if stored in them. We can supply net bags, max 10 per person. Please check for and remove any bad apples before bringing them in. We can only accept apples picked from your own property.
If you can’t pick them yourself, our picking team may be able to pick them for you and we would give you a bottle(s) in return. Please e mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address and number and type of trees.
