Over the past week, we haven’t been idle! More than 4,700 apple trees have been planted on 6 hectares near our cider house in Ducy-Sainte-Marguerite.

Are you wondering how it goes?

The preparation for such an extension took us 3 days, preparing the young apple trees, pruning the twigs and arranging the bundles. Then we planted the different varieties of cider apples in neat, organized rows using a tractor-drawn planter.

And now ? Maintenance (organic of course!) and patience 🙂

Within 3 years, these apple trees will give their very first apples, in very small quantities. After 5 years, they will enter into their full performance, which will last for about thirty years.
