We believe our famous Bramley Apples, awarded PGI Status in 2012, and our other apple varieties are the best in the world so come and join us at the 2017 Richhill Apple Harvest Fayre on Saturday, October 28 and taste them for yourself.
Where else can you eat apples, peel apples, eat pies, enjoy cookery demonstrations by the wonderful Jenny Bristow, sample locally produced ciders and juices, drink craft beers, celebrate Halloween, buy locally produced County Armagh food, meet the producers and indulge in scarecrow making competitions?
The Richhill Apple Harvest Fayre is now in its fourth year and celebrates all the very best food and drink which the region and further afield has to offer.
The fayre is on Saturday, October 28 and is held in the square of the beautiful and historic village of Richhill in the heart of the Orchard County.
The end of the Harvest is a time to relax and celebrate the end of a hard years' labour before the next one begins. The fayre is a chance to sample the delicious produce on sale, have something to eat, enjoy cookery demonstrations with Jenny Bristow and local chefs, sample locally produced ciders and juices, listen to the live entertainment on offer all day and take part in the many children’s activities on offer.
The cookery demonstrations run throughout the day with some of Armagh’s finest showcasing their talents and showing the amazing dishes which can be prepared using finest local ingredients especially the Armagh apples. And this year we are delighted to welcome the fantastic Jenny Bristow who will be leading the cookery demonstrations with local chefs Mervyn Steenson, John White and Sean Farnan.
Live music and entertainment will be on the main stage and back by popular demand is the tug-of-war display where local people can also get involved in the challenge. There will be children’s entertainment running throughout the day in the grounds of Richhill Castle and this year we will have a fine display of vintage tractors.
This fayre has been organised by Richhill Buildings Preservation Trust by a dedicated team of volunteers. It has received financial support from Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council and local private businesses who also sponsor the event.
