The Anglo-Saxons called September ‘Harvest month’, because it was their time for harvesting barley to be made into barley brew, and gathering fruit to boil and seal in crock jars. Following Anglo Saxon Britain, harvesting traditionally began on the 24th September in medieval England, seeing farmers gather their crops around this time of year.

This is something that has transcended farm life, as even today we pick wild fruit such as blackberries and apples for making delicious seasonal pies, becoming part of what we love most about September!
