Making Use of the School's Apples
Before Half Term, Gordonstoun’s Conservation Service picked over 200kg of apples from the campus orchard. With such a successful crop, the service set about looking for a local apple press and pasteuriser. One of our neighbouring farmers kindly obliged and the students were amazed that the apples yielded so much juice…an impressive 140 bottles! Their bee keeping has also been successful with 40 jars of honey being produced.
Both the apple juice and honey will on sale to students and staff with proceeds from sales going towards Gordonstoun International Service projects in Thailand, Kenya and Romania.
