Over the years Ballycross Apple Farm in Bridgetown, County Wexford has selected varieties of apples with exceptional flavour, aroma and texture. The apples are hand picked at full maturity and then pressed using traditional rack and cloth methods to ensure the delicate and distinctive aroma is captured in every bottle. They operate under a NSAI approved quality scheme that means high standards of food hygiene and traceability.
Single variety apple juices include Elstar, a sweet aromatic juice, Jonagold, a crisp, fresh, easy to drink, medium sweet juice and Bramley, a dry, zesty juice. They also produce blended juices that include apple and blackcurrant (grown on the farm) and apple and carrot (grown locally). Ballycross Apple Farm is a family business with a long tradition of growing the finest quality apples. In season, they are available to buy in the farm shop.
The orchards at Ballycross Apple Farm are a delight, but so too are the farm buildings with their well manicured courtyard, farm shop and café. Visitors may choose to settle in for a glass of well chilled juice and a light lunch or to take a bottle or two home. A case is to be recommended, a bottle never quite seems to be enough. Orders can also be placed online via their website. A Good Food Ireland member.
