Once again the National Trust, with the help of many volunteers, will be working to produce approx 350 jars of Black Butter which will be sold, still warm and fresh, throughout the afternoon at the Genuine Jersey Market on the Saturday of this hugely successful event. Enthusiastic and committed volunteers work tirelessly to chop and peel over 1300 lb of apples and continually stir the mixture for 25 hours. The whole event has a fantastic community feel with everyone, no matter what their age, getting stuck in.
