Tring in Transition wants to encourage the growing and consumption of local foods.
Historically the area supported many orchards, in the town itself the last surviving orchard - Jeacock's on Cow Lane - was saved from development in 2004. Nationally important, the country’s only surviving First World War smallholding still remains, along with its historic bungalow, its orchard and nationally scarce wildlife. Featured in The Times and on BBC’s Countryfile, it helped to establish Tring Farmer’s Market in 1999 – one of the very first in the country and has hosted an Apple Day since 2005. This has grown into Tring’s Own Apple Fayre, a powerful seasonal festival which engages all sections of the community where possible. It aims to celebrate and support our local environment, our town, its businesses and its people together in a fun way.
