The Apple Farm – Tipperary
This Tipperary location certainly lives up to its name, as this farm found just outside Cahir produces 60 varieties of apple in its stunning orchards.

You can pick your own apples from their crop, watch them making their juices, or purchase some delectable cider vinegar or ready-plucked fruit in their on-site shop.
