Things to do at the farm throughout the year
Events at Healey’s Cyder Farm
If you are looking for things to do in Newquay and Truro at one of Cornwall’s top visitor attractions, take a look at our family friendly events.
From Sunday roasts and hearty Cornish breakfasts to Halloween happenings and Cornish apple bobbing. There’s so many reasons to visit the farm at any time of the year.
Date: Every Sunday from 1st October 2017
Details: Gather the family and head to Healeys for a hearty Sunday Roast-farm style. Kick back in Cornish Cyder land and tuck into slow cooked Cornish meat with all the sides (we cater for veggies too).
Feel at home in the new The Old Bottlery restaurant inspired by the typical farm kitchen, warmed by a log fire with a backdrop of Cornish cyders on tap. Whilst our chefs serve up, you can chill out with a Rattler from only £2.50 a pint or get to know our friendly farm animals.
We’re designed for families: wellies welcome, bring the dog and enjoy everything the farm has to offer.
Prices from £11.95, with little plates also available.
Cornish Apple Bobbing Championships
Date: Sunday 22nd October
Details: The first ever Cornish Apple Bobbing Championships will be hosted at the core of ‘apple land’ at Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm on Sunday 22nd October 2017 from 11am.
In celebration of one of the nation’s favourite fruits during harvesting season, locals and visitors are invited to take the plunge to bob as many apples as they can in one minute. The winner will be crowned King or Queen of the orchards.
The day starts with the kids (5-16 years) competition at 11am for the chance to win a month’s supply of fruit juice and a meal for two in The Old Bottlery Restaurant. This is followed by a bobbing battle between adults to win a month’s supply of Cornish Rattler and a meal for two in The Old Bottlery restaurant.
If you are looking for things to do in Newquay this autumn, this event is fun for all the family. Take part or simply spectate. There’s lots to see and do at the farm throughout the day whilst also enjoying proper farm food. From Cornish breakfast to a Sunday Roast lunch with slow cooked meats and all the trimmings in our new restaurant. Warm up with a mulled cyder on offer during the event and tuck into our famous homemade scones with a traditional or Rattler cream tea.
There’s free parking and free entry into the farm. And as a dog friendly attraction in Cornwall, four-legged friends are welcome on a lead.
£2 registration for the Championships is payable on the day in the Visitor Centre which will go to Cornwall Community Foundation charity.
Date: 27-31 October 2017
