Dan Kelly’s Cider is hosting a special virtual edition of its 7th annual Apple Blossom Walk this coming Saturday 2nd May and Sunday 3rd May.
While the orchard may not be able to open to the public due to COVID 19, the team can still show fans the orchard in full bloom through the internet.
This year, as people won’t be able to donate in person, Dan Kelly’s is asking people to donate directly to Drogheda Homeless Aid and the SOSAD Organisation through https://www.gofundme.com/f/2020-boyne-grove-fruit-farm-apple-blossom-walk.
On Saturday 2nd May Olan McNeece of Dan Kelly’s Cider will be live from the orchard at 3pm to answer questions from the public. To ask a question, simply comment on Dan Kelly’s Facebook page. A winner will also be picked to receive a box of cider.
On Sunday 3rd May at 3pm there will be a live tractor tour through the orchards that the whole family can enjoy. Later on that evening viewers will also get to experience the orchard from above and see 14,000 apple trees in full blossom via drone footage.
Olan McNeece of Boyne Grove Fruit Farm said: “Seeing our orchard in full bloom is such a special time of year. We look forward to this event every year, as do the many hundreds of people who attend. Even though we can’t open our gates to the public this year due to the restrictions, we are delighted to still be able to share the beauty of our orchard and tell people about how we make our ciders, the history of the farm and more.”
