The Story of the Producer

Ballycross Apple Farm

Ballycross Apple Farm

Ballycross Apple Farm was established by Michella and Arnold Von Englebrechtan in Bridgetown Co.Wexford in the early 1960s. Now the farm is run by their son Christian who is equally passionate about the quality of their juices, and therefore only grows apple varieties of exceptional flavour and texture. We stock not only the wonderful Ballycross Juice Range but also depending on the season, many of their apple varieties and fantastically big pumpkins from October onwards.
