We are a volunteer-run, not-for-profit organisation run by and for orchard, apple and cider enthusiasts in south Devon. Membership is open to all.

Orchard Link offers its members technical advice, a programme of events, courses and activities, and makes key items of equipment – mills, presses and pasteurisers – available for hire. In season we also provide a space where apple growers can offer or sell surplus apples: Harvestline.

We aim to promote:

  • The restoration and planting of orchards.
  • The conservation of traditional local fruit varieties.
  • The productive use of fruit crops for eating, juicing, cider making and cooking.
  • The exchange of knowledge, skills and expertise.
  • Community involvement in orchard management, heritage and traditions.

Community Orchard Sites in South Devon

Find out about over 25 community orchards in South Devon and the people who look after them. South Devon is home to many community orchards, each one with its own unique story. Whether situated in a town, village or hamlet, with 12 or 112 trees, be it a haven for wildlife, a place to grow or an open space for people – every community orchard has one thing in common: they are run by the community for the community.

Orchard Link actively supports community orchards, with their fruit and nut trees, their wildlife biodiversity, and the volunteers who help to look after them as open, green spaces for their community and for visitors to use and enjoy.
