Terms of Website Membership

As an organisation, we receive requests from a range of individuals and groups asking us to promote their services or products. 

We have a commitment to treat all our stakeholders consistently and respectfully. We do not want to be seen to be promoting certain suppliers / groups over others.  Further, we are cautious about how we use our contacts and are concerned about sending out information from third parties on principle.  

We have therefore, adopted a policy that we will not allow members of this website, where there will be commercial gain, to promote their products or services.  In addition, we will not circulate information to our contacts on their behalf.

If you have any queries, then please contact Sadie, Project Support Officer (Forth Valley Orchards' Initiative)  on 01786 449215 or email

Thank you for your co-operation.

Thinning fruits on apple, pear and plum trees is normally done in June and July. Often the tree does its own work by shedding fruit during what is known as the 'June Drop', but this year there has been very little apple June Drop in the garden where I volunteer, so we have had to reduce the clusters of fruit by…
