Lovely. Jam?
I am planting a 15 tree orchard in November and can't wait to be overrun with pears and fruit. If you've got any Victoria Plums I'll take some off you. :-)

My neighbours take the heavy load from their apple tree to middle farm press and produce many litres of divine apple juice which they freeze. I don't know how much it costs but maybe worth investigating?

pie filling, or flavored brandies might be nice. you can also dehydrate sliced fruit. all of them would make wonderful gifts for giving. i'm sure you could google some recipes and youtube has how-to videos. have fun!

How about putting a box outside your house with a notice saying FREE TO A GOOD HOME, I am sure loads of local people would love to share in your good harvest or take them round to the Phoenix Centre or your local old folks home, elderly neighbours or house of friendship in the high street, someone somewhere will appreciate them!!!

Why would local people take them to the Phoenix Centre?
Set up a stall in a layby and flog them I say!

I like The Grange Gardens, and the way the teashop has the most odd mixture of china from the charity shops
