The first orchard in Somerset on record dates back to the 13th century
Somerset is a county famous for its orchards; in 1894 there were over 26,000 acres found in the county.
Although that number has since dwindled, a resurgence is happening and more and more people are growing apple trees, primarily to make cider.
And now another orchard will be added to the list as one is to be planted on Sunday at Dillington House, Ilminster.
Thirty-six trees will be planted in the new orchard and will feature three local varieties.
These are Tom Putt, the bitter sharp tasting Kingston Black (which is believed to have hailed from Kingston St Mary, near Taunton) and Dabinett, a bitter sweet flavour which came from Mid Lambrook.
Author James Crowden, who has written a book about the county's cider, will plant the first tree and hold a talk on the subject.
Somerset cider has gained attention recently as Juliam Temperley was awarded a top prize at the 'food Oscars' - the BBC Food & Farming Awards.
The award was partly in recognition for the county's long history of cider making.
The first orchard dates back to the 13th Century and monasteries had good orchards. Current cider-makers are in fact relying on methods discovered 150 years ago.
Somerset is a popular place for cider making as the climate and soil characteristics are perfect.
James, who used to work for Julian, said he loved cider's indigenous nature, and that it is a drink made right from nature.
Tickets for the talk cost £10 and include a cider tasting, tea and cake afterwards and can reserved on 01460 258 613.
