The Apple Farm
Con Traas of the famous Apple Farm will be onsite and offering juices by the cupful from a snazzy new dispenser machine that they have. There will also be sparkling juices by the bottle.
Con would also be hopeful of having strawberries then (if they have not run out), and the most amazing raspberries too.The Apple Farm have been growing and selling fruit in Tipperary since 1968, and making juices since 1995. They grow about 60 different varieties of apples on the farm, and many different types of strawberries, raspberries, plums and cherries, as well as the apples of course.
