Powys Orchard Survey

Do you own or look after an orchard in Powys? How's your fruit crop this year?

Dyfi Valley Seed Savers are again collecting experiences of growing fruit in our beautiful, but damp land. It's now the second year of surveying which will result in a report advising how to plan and plant new orchards in the area.

If you haven't already done so please help us by filling in our questionnaire which can be found at where you can also read more about the project. We'd love to hear your experiences.

If you live in the Dyfi Valley and have just one or two apple trees, then please fill in our Apple Mach Register instead, which can also be downloaded through the website.

No time to pick? If you live in the Dyfi Valley and have more apples than you know what to do with then you might like to join a new cider making project - also called Apple Mach. Share your apples - get some cider. Visit for more information.

Happy harvesting,

Chloe - Dyfi Valley Seed Savers
