Harvestline is 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 both source apples and for those  who are seeking to sell apples.

Should you be thinking of listing on this page and you are located outside the Devon area please consider carefully if this is for you. Traveling distances, costs of transport and the increased costs of picking have to be thought about when putting a listing on this page looking to source apples. For those who are located further away it is recommended you look source apples from orchards nearer to you. Non members of Orchard Link are welcome to post here from anywhere in the U.K. Harvestline receives many postings that are unrealistic, 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 sack if you are looking to buy apples and how much you might want per ton or per sack if you are selling.

Orchard owners may or may not be looking for payment for their apples. However please remember payment gives a little income for orchard owners to help maintain their orchards.   Please list the varieties if you know them or, failing that, say if the apples are ciders, cookers or deserts & say how much you are willing to pay alongside. 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.

If you are looking to obtain apples, remember you are more likely to succeed if you are able to pick them yourself.
