Buy and Sell Apples - Harvestline

Do you have lots of apples to spare? Or do you need lots of apples for juicing or cider making? This section of the website acts as a notice board for individuals to get in touch with each other to buy, sell or exchange apples. Postings are taken from throughout the U.K. for those wishing to sell apples but postings for those looking to buy are taken only from members of Orchard Link or those who live around Devon. If you wish to post just complete and submit the form. We will then add it to the listings below. You are then free to contact other potential buyers or sellers and make your own arrangement.

How to submit a listing

Please read through the instructions and craft your post carefully giving full details as this will lessen the post being rejected as posts that do not have sufficient details or which do not have an email address will be automatically rejected.

Posts looking for small amounts of apples will not be posted unless they are Orchard Link members or live adjacent to Devon. Individuals looking for apples should contact any sellers direct without posting.

If you are succesfull with your post please inform info@orchardlink.org.uk so that your post can be deleted. This will mean individuals will not get unwanted calls or emails.

As stated harvestline is essentially a service for members of Orchard Link in and around Devon to enable them to buy, sell, exchange apples. It is also open for individuals, professional growers and small orchard owners throughout the U.K. to who are seeking to sell apples.  For those who are located further away and looking to buy it is recommended you look source apples from orchards nearer to you.

Non members of Orchard Link looking to sell apples are welcome to post here from anywhere in the U.K. If you have any questions or need advice about  your posting please email us at info@orchardlink.org.uk

Do not list here if you live outside the U.K. the posting will be rejected automatically.

 

Please fill out the form in full, giving as much information as possible.

In particular please include how much you would be willing to pay for the apples per ton or by kilo if you are looking to buy apples and how much you might want per ton or kilo if you are selling.

Also if seeking apples please state the approximate weight of the apples you are looking for, do not be vague and use terms such as sacks.

Orchard owners may or may not be looking for payment for their apples. However please remember Orchards are an important resource in the general environment and many have been lost over the last few years, payment gives a little income for orchard owners to help maintain their orchards and  helps the surrounding environment.   Please list the varieties if you know them or, failing that, say if the apples are ciders, cookers or deserts. The more information you can provide, the better your chances are for success in particular please give a postcode or at least the county you are located in.

Some important small print
