Autumn is nearly upon us and the annual tradition of Black Butter making at The Elms is taking place from 7 – 9 October - later than last year’s rather unfamiliar event. That was organised during the pandemic in late September and, despite all the constraints and restrictions, still yielded over 260 jars of our wonderful apple conserve assisted entirely by our wonderful Black Butter ‘army’ of volunteers who peeled, stirred and jarred up.

If you have not been involved in this local tradition and feel like getting involved this year, why not come along to The Elms? There are numerous jobs and it is a lovely way of getting together, having a chat with old and new friends and all of your efforts will raise money for the Trust.
Volunteers can peel apples, watch the mixture being stirred all through the night, get involved in jarring up and then enjoy homemade food and live music on market day when the Black Butter goes on sale.
