Beavers & Cubs have a pressing time…




The beavers & cubs were welcomed by Pure North Cider Press this week when they visited Pure North in Netherthong. They were shown the young orchard which boasts a variety of apples and pears that will be destined for the Netherthong presses when the trees mature and bear fruit. The beavers and cubs discovered the important ingredients to grow a good cider apple which include pollination by bees. To ensure that this step happens, Pure North have bee hives close by. The visit helps the cubs achieve their local knowledge badge and goes towards the outdoor challenge badge for beavers. The cubs and beavers are very grateful to Rob from Pure North Cider Press for showing them round.
