Cider apples in Monmouthshire

In the shadow of the Skirrid Mountain, just outside of Abergavenny is one of the old orchards of Monmouthshire. The farmer does not use the orchard but allows Llanblethian Orchards Cider to come in and pick the apples and pears. There are varieties of apples such as Kingstone Black, Newtons Wonder, Yarlington Mill and a few we dont know. Each variety will be fermented separatly and may be blended to produce the final product, available next year. Its not raining yet but may do so later, onwards to pick the KB!
